Hand #103: Ben Zamani moved all in for 1,095,000 from the small blind, and Chris Klodnicki called for 1,065,000 from the big blind. Klodnicki was at risk with {a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}, up against Zamani's {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

The flop came {q-Clubs}{9-Spades}{7-Spades}. Zamani picked up a straight draw, but ace-high was still good for Klodnicki. The turn was the {5-Spades}, and the river was the {k-Hearts}.

Klodnicki thought he lost and got up from his seat, but the dealer pushed him the pot, and Zamani was left with just 30,000.

Hand #104: Zamani was all in for 25,000 on the button. Klodnicki completed the small blind, and Schuyler Thornton checked his option in the big blind. The two players checked down a board reading {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{6-Hearts}, and Zamani won the pot with {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}, as Klodnicki held {q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}, and Thornton tabled {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

Hand #105: Zamani moved all in for 105,000 from under the gun, and Thornton called from the small blind, as did Emile Schiff in the big blind. The two players checked down a board reading {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}, and Thornton tabled {k-Spades}{j-Hearts} for a straight.

Zamani flashed {k-Hearts}{7-Spades} for trip sevens and mucked his hand before saying his goodbyes. He was eliminated in fourth place, taking home $139,896 for his deep run today.
