Ziad Alameddine opened the action from early position, Matt Stout three-bet to 15,000 next to act, and it folded back around to Alameddine. He moved all in for 50,000 on the dot and Stout called.

Stout: 9s9h
Alameddine: AhAd

Alameddine found a monster with a chance to double but cringed when the flop came 9d4d4s. Stout flopped a boat and the board finished Jd turn and Js river to send Alameddine out early on Day 2.

Matt Stout – 132,000 (53 bb)
Ziad Alameddine – Eliminated
