Joseph El Khoury Eliminated in 5th Place ($65,770)

Joseph El Khoudry

It has taken quite some time but we have finally lost another player; that dubious honor going to Joseph El Khoury.

The action folded to El Khoury in the cutoff and he moved all-in for a total of 1,225,000. Victor Paraschiv folded on the button but Marvin Rettenmaier instantly called and the cards were revealed.

El Khoury: {A-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Rettenmaier: {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}

Rettenmaier held the advantage and it stayed that way on a {4-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs} flop. The {3-Hearts} turn gave El Khoury some outs to a straight but the {8-Diamonds} was not one of them and we are now down to four players in the main event.
