Saber Salum

Saber Salum open-shoved for 1,225,000 and it folded to the blinds. Omar Lakhdari thought for a minute but folded his small blind before Nicholas Verderamo quickly called in the big.

Verderamo: AhKs
Salum: Ad8d

Salum was in trouble against the bigger ace and no help came on the KcJh3c flop. He picked up some chop save outs on the Td turn but blanked the As river to exit in 10th place.

Nicholas Verderamo – 10,350,000 (82 bb)
Saber Salum – Eliminated in 10th Place ($97,525)

Tournament staff paused the clock to redraw seats at the nine-handed final table. They will continue playing until six players remain for the WPT live-stream final table.
