After a flop of 9s4d4c, Aaron Kupin bet 15,000 from the small blind, and Zyad Qasem moved all in from the big blind for 36,000. Ha Tran thought for a while before he folded from UTG.

Kupin asked for an exact count and thought for a while before he called.

Aaron Kupin:  AhQhQcJc10s  (two pair, queens and fours)
Zyad Qasem:  8s8d5d4h2s  (trip fours)

The turn card was the 3d, the river card was the 5c, and Qasem rivers a full house, fours full of fives, to win the pot and double up in chips.

Zyad Qasem  –  125,000  (21 bb)
Aaron Kupin  –  160,000  (27 bb)

With eight players remaining from a field of 102, the average chip stack is about 255,000 (43 big blinds). The next player to be eliminated will earn $3,425 for eighth place.
