Sukhpaul Dhaliwal Eliminated in 21st Place ($40,931)

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 24: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Sukhpaul Dhaliwal - 21st Place

Two consecutive hands saw Sukhpaul Dhaliwal's stack disappear, and with it, his chance at a historic million dollar payday.

First, Dhaliwal raised to 58,000 from middle position, receiving calls in two spots from Upsheka Desilva and Robert Mcveigh. The flop of {8-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} prompted Dhaliwal to fire a bet of 95,000, which folded Desilva. Mcveigh flopped top pair with his {8-Clubs}{9-Spades}, however, and he elected to reraise to 225,000, a bet which Dhaliwal called.

When the {9-Clubs} turned, Mcveigh shoved for 493,000 and Dhaliwal made the call with his {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}. His overpair to the board had been cracked by two pair, and the {5-Diamonds} on the river changed nothing.

Theron Eichenberger finished Dhaliwal off one hand later, when his {K-Spades}{6-Diamonds} bested the short-stack's {J-Hearts}{4-Hearts}.

Dhaliwal earned $40,931 for making it this far, but with so few players between himself and a million bucks, he will likely be thinking about that nine on the turn deep into the night.
