Martin Zamani moved all in from the hijack for 140,000, Ali Imsirovic called from the button, and Bryn Kenney moved all in over the top from the small blind. Imsirovic folded.

Zamani turned over AhJd, and he needed his hand to hold to stay alive against Kenney’s Kc9c.

The board came 7h5c3d6d8d, and Kenney rivered a nine-high straight to win the pot and eliminate Zamani in fifth place.

As he got up to leave, Zamani smiled and said, “Alright, Bryn. Nice interaction. I wish death upon you again.” (Zamani was clearly joking, and it didn’t come off the least bit threatening.)

Bryn Kenney  –  6,900,000  (230 bb)
Martin Zamani  –  Eliminated in 5th Place  ($141,085)

With four players remaining, the average chip stack is about 2,550,000 (85 big blinds), and the remaining players are all guaranteed at least $216,670 each.
