AJ Atiqi shoved all in for 234,000 under the gun and cleared the field all the way to Shahiriar Assareh, who called off for 224,000 in the big blind.

Assareh: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Atiqi: {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}

"That's not how I want to go out," Atiqi said. The good news is it's not how he'd go out as he had 10,000 more in chips. The bad news is that's all he was left with after the board ran out {4-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{10-Hearts}.

Atiqi was all in from the big blind the very next hand and managed to quadruple up, but he was eliminated a short time later by Robert Cheung.
