Event #49: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Justin Zaki Eliminated in 7th Place ($78,067)

Justin Zaki - 7th place

Mihai Manole opened to 100,000 from the button only to have Justin Zaki move all in for 775,000 from the big blin. Manole instantly-called to put Zaki and his tournament life at risk.

Zaki: {6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
Manole: {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}

The flop of {8-Spades}{A-Spades}{9-Diamonds} gave Manole top set, but still left Zaki with outs to a gutshot straight.

To the cheers of the Romanian's on the rail sweating Manole, the {9-Hearts} landed on the turn to ensure victory for Manole as the meaningless {K-Hearts} peeled on the river.

Zaki shook hands with his fellow opponents before making his way to the rail to collect his $78,067 in prizemoney for his 7th place finish as Manole climbs to 1,675,000 in chips.
