Habib Jahangard

Frank Russo limped from early position, Habib Jahangard did the same from the cutoff, Jake Ristich completed the small blind and Ryan McKnight checked his option.

The flop came down 8h6h3c and Ristich checked to McKnight who bet 150,000. Russo raised all in for 785,000, Jahangard called and Ristich went into the tank for a while before he check-reraised all in for about 1,500,000. McKnight folded after some thought and Jahangard called.

Russo: AcAs
Jahangard: 6c6s
Ristich: Ah4h

The Qc turn and Jc river completed the board, safe for Jahangard to score the double elimination and jump into the chip lead.

Habib Jahangard – 5,500,000 (92 bb)
Jake Ristich – Eliminated in 33rd Place ($4,807)
Frank Russo – Eliminated in 34th Place ($4,807)
