Talal Shakerchi Eliminated in 7th Place (€138,300)

Talal Shakerchi

On a flop of {J-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}, Ilari Sahamies checked from the big blind and opened the door for Talal Shakerchi to bet 155,000 from the under-the-gun position. Sahamies responded with a check-raise to 425,000, and Shakerchi wasted little time in moving all in for 1.13 million.

Sahamies, who began the hand with just a bit more than his opponent, asked for a count and thought for a solid minute before making the call.

Shakerchi: {9-Spades}{10-Spades}
Sahamies: {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}

Shakerchi was a 2-1 dog with his open-ended straight draw, which wouldn't come in as both the {7-Spades} turn and {10-Hearts} river blanked. With that, Shakerchi exited in seventh place for €138,300, while Sahamies received a virtual double.
