Pahuja & Galfond Eliminated from Secondary Feature Table

Chad_Holloway • Level 17: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Phil Galfond in earlier WSOP action.

We missed the elimination of Vinny Pahuja from the secondary feature table, but one of the television crew were kind enough to fill us in on his final hand. Apparently it happened at the tail end of Level 16 when he got his stack all in preflop holding {a-}{j-} and ran smack dab into the {a-}{k-} of an opponent. The board ran out clean and one half of the Brothers Pahuja was felled in 575th place for $20,228.

More recently at the same table, there was about 60,000 in the pot and a flop of {3-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades} when Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond got his last 90,000 or so all in against Fabian Deimann.

Galfond: {2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Deimann: {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}

Galfond had flopped an open-ended straight draw with his ducks, but Deimann flopped a better one with pocket sixes. The {7-Diamonds} turn actually gave Deimann a seven-high straight, and that meant Galfond could only chop with a six on the river. It didn't happen though as the {4-Diamonds} blanked and Galfond found himself on the rail in 527th place for $22,678.
