Hand #7: Asher Conniff open-jammed in a middling position for 17,700,000 and it folded to Michael Duek in the small blind, who made the call. The rails jumped out of their seats and the chants commenced as one of the most typical coin flips got under the way.
Once the flop gave Duek quads, his rail from Argentina exploded while the recent birthday boy was already drawing dead. Neither the turn nor the river were important anymore as the elimination of Conniff in 10th place for $675,000 and the 2022 WSOP Main Event has reached the official nine-handed final table.
"Definitely the coolest poker experience I've ever had," he told Kara Scott shortly after his exit. "It was an unfortunate way to go out but at least they put me out quickly. I appreciate every moment though.
"It's been amazing, incredible, especially today. So many people showed up. It was special."
Got 10th in the WSOP main event. Pretty crazy to experience something so heartbreaking and heartwarming at the sam… https://t.co/UXO03NRD45— Asher Conniff (@misterashmoney)
