Amit Makhija Eliminated in 13th Place ($42,231)
Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
After a flop of 962, Kirk Morrison checks the small blind, Amit Makhija checks the big blind, and Vanessa Rousso bets 100,000 from the button. Morrison folds, and Makhija thinks for a bit before he calls.
The turn card is the 10, Makhija checks, Rousso moves all in, and Makhija goes into the tank for a long while before he says, "I call."
Rousso turns over 22 for a set of deuces, and Makhija says, "I wish I didn't turn a gutshot," and shows 98 for a pair of nines with a ten-high gutshot straight draw. Makhija needs to catch a seven to stay alive.
The river card is the 6, and Rousso wins the pot with a full house, deuces full of sixes. Makhija is eliminated, and quietly but quickly disappears from the room.
Vanessa Rousso - 3,053,000
Amit Makhija - Out in 13th Place ($42,231)
