Behrooz Shahrzad (Kensington, MD)
Behrooz went card dead at the wrong time.
He and Chris Reslock got 4 bets in pre-flop and the last chips went in on the flop of J 8 4.
Behrooz had KK83 and one 5k chip left.
Chris had AAJ9 and was at risk.
The last two fell 6 Q and Chris' Aces held up to scoop the pot.
Behrooz tried to come back with his single chip. He tripled up on the next hand, then chopped the hand after that, but the final hand had him rivering the nut flush at the same time Chris Reslock made a full house.
Behrooz finished in 3rd place, earning $4,470.
At the start of heads-up play, Ilya Dyment had 725k. Chris Reslock had 425k.
