Hand #7: Talal Shakerchi Eliminated in 8th Place ($509,000)

mnuwwarah • Level 32: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante
Talal Shakerchi

Hand #7: Marc Rivera opened for 500,000 with {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts} in the hijack and Julien Martini made it 1,325,000 with {a-Spades}{q-Spades}. Jattin picked up the {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds} in the small blind and used a couple of time extensions before mucking.

In the next seat, Talal Shakerchi woke up with {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs} and shoved all in for 5,250,000. Rivera mucked and Martini thought a bit but opted to call after it folded back to him.

The flop came {3-Clubs}{k-Spades}{2-Hearts}, little to fear for Shakerchi, but the {10-Spades} brought lots of outs for Martini. The river: {5-Spades}, busting Shakerchi in sick fashion.
