101st-Place Bubble Boy: Ali Eslami
Level 13: 1,500-3,000, 400 ante
Ali Eslami is all in preflop from the button for 33,400, and Scott Vener barely has him covered from middle position, with only 35,000. There are other hands still in play, so these players must wait before revealing their hole cards. But unless it's a chopped pot, somebody is going to be either eliminated or crippled.
As it turns out, there end up being three all-in situations at different tables. (You can read about the other hands in nearby posts.)
Eslami turns over AK, and Vener shows 1010. It's a race situation with the two players nearly even in chips. The board comes Q747J, and the pocket tens hold up for Vener to eliminate Ali Eslami from the tournament.
