Parwez Nawabi - 18th Place
Parwez Nawabi - 18th Place

Ben Mintz opened for 40,000 from middle position and cleared the field to Parwez Nawabi, who moved all in for 324,000 from the small blind. Mintz asked for a count and when he got it said, "Alright, lets do it."

Mintz: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}
Nawabi: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}

Nawabi got it in as an overwhelming favorite, but as Mintz would tell you, he's been running hot for two days. The proof was in the pudding as after the {8-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop blanked, the {Q-Hearts} slammed down on the turn. Mintz went from underdog to favorite, and after the {9-Clubs} completed the board on the river, Nawabi was sent to the rail in 18th place.
