Saifudden Ahmad Eliminated in 56th Place ($7,710)
Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Saifudden Ahmad and Mike Eskandari are heads-up on a board of 765. Eskandari checks out of the small blind, Ahmad bets 40,000, and Eskandari min-raises to 80,000.
Ahmad immediately announces he is all-in and Eskandari quickly calls. Eskandari stands and turns over 34 for a flopped seven-high straight. Ahmad shows A7 for top pair.
The turn brings the 7, giving Ahmad trips and prompting Eskandari to say, "Oh no, don't do it to me."
The river 3 is a good one for Eskandari as his straight holds to take the pot, eliminate Ahmad, and make him the first player to cross the two million-chip mark.
Mike Eskandari - 2,150,000 (358 BBs)
Saifuddin Ahmad - eliminated in 56th place ($7,710)
