Saad Ghanem

Zachary Grech opened the action with a raise to 125,000 in the cutoff and Korey Payne called on the button. Saad Ghanem re-shoved in the big blind for 1.12 million and action went back to Grech.

Grech went into the tank for a bit and eventually called all in for slightly less, totaling 1.095 million. Payne then folded.

Saad Ghanem: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Zachary Grech: {a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

Ghanem was done in on the turn as the board ran out {10-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}, giving Grech a three outer and crippling Ghanem. Ghanem did find a double with {q-Hearts}{2-Hearts} hitting two pair against {10-}{7-} on a subsequent hand to get up to two big blinds, but lost with king-queen to a rivered straight against Dale Eberle on the hand that followed to finish in 11th place.
