Justin Zaki got most of his stack in the pot preflop from the hijack against Shannon Shorr in the cutoff.

The flop came Jd6d2h, Zaki checked, Shorr moved all in, and Zaki called all in for a single chip — 5,000 — with As9h for ace high.

Shorr turned over JhJc for a set of jacks to clinch the pot right there on the flop.

“I can’t believe this. I’m drawing dead,” said Zaki.

The turn card was the 4s, the river card was the 3c, and Shorr won the pot with his set of jacks to eliminate Zaki in 50th place.

Shannon Shorr  –  2,070,000  (104 bb)
