Mark Nahama

Andrew Thompson open/shoved from early position, Nicholas Mahabee called on the button, and Mark Nahama called in the big blind for ~275,000.

Thompson: AdAh
Mahabee: 8s8c
Nahama: KdQc

Namaha caught part of the Kc7d4h flop but Thompson’s aces held after the 4d turn and 3c to send Nahama out while piling up better than a double.

Andrew Thompson – 1,450,000 (18 bb)
Nicholas Mahabee – 1,800,000 (23 bb)
Mark Nahama – Eliminated in 8th place ($2,947)
