Dan Abouaf Eliminated in 16th Place (€31,700)

KaleGozer • Level 23: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante
Dan Abouaf

Dan Abouaf open-shoved 595,000 from middle position, a shove of nearly 24 big blinds, and Saleh called in the big blind with 590,000 total.

Dan Abouaf: {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}
Sadri Saleh: {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}

Abouaf went from three to four outs on the {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{K-Spades} flop but neither the {A-Clubs} turn nor {2-Diamonds} river was the queen he needed. Abouaf was left with just 5,000, half a small blind, literally a chip and a chair.

The next hand, Abouaf got his final chip in with {A-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Andre Akkari isolated with {A-Spades}{10-Hearts} to get it heads-up. The flop was {6-Spades}{4-Hearts}{9-Clubs} to pair up Abouaf, but after the {J-Clubs} turn and {10-Spades} river Akkari's best hand preflop was best at showdown.

Abouaf was the first player out on Day 5 and received €31,700.
