Saad Ghanem Eliminated in 5th Place ($36,000)

HillKerby • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 30,000 ante
Saad Ghanem

Saad Ghanem went all in from the small blind for his last 300,000 or so. Gennady Shimelfarb was in the big blind and looked down at his cards, looked up at Ghanem, and then picked up a stack of T25,000 chips and set them down with forward motion to make the call.

Saad Ghanem: {5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}
Gennady Shimelfarb: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

Ghanem picked up four more outs on the flop {7-Spades}{9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} but was unable to fill up as the turn {7-Clubs} and river {9-Spades} brought two pair on board, leaving his five kicker to be unmatched to Shimelfarb's ace to send him to the payout desk as the fifth-place finisher.

Due to the chop that all players agreed to, Ghanem will be taking home $36,000 for his efforts.
