2013 World Series of Poker

Event #7: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em
Days: 3

Amit Makhija Eliminated in 4th Place ($94,353)

Level 25 : 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Amit Makhija - 5th Place
Amit Makhija - 5th Place

Hand #99: Matt Waxman raised to 60,000 from the button and Amit Makhija called from the big blind. The {4-Spades}{5-Clubs}{8-Hearts} flop saw Makhija, who started the day as the chip leader, check and Waxman bet 50,000. Makhija responded by check-raising all in for 300,000 or so and Waxman snap-called.

Waxman: {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}
Makhija: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

It was a cooler for Makhija as he ran his pocket pair straight into pocket rockets. Neither the {5-Diamonds} turn nor {4-Clubs} river changed a thing, and that was all she wrote for Makhija. He will take home $94,353 for his fourth-place finish.
