Hand #35: Ben Klier Eliminated in 6th Place ($148,427)
Level 35: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante
Kia Mohajeri raises from the small blind to 500,000, Ben Klier moves all in from the big blind for 5,550,000, and Mohajeri insta-calls with just a few more chips. Mohajeri shows AQ, and he's racing against Klier's JJ.
Dwyte Pilgrim walks over to his friends in the stands and says, "Hold one time," apparently rooting for Klier here. Pilgrim follows it up with, "Give him five jacks," whatever that means.
The flop comes K104, and the crowd starts shouting things about the fact that Mohajeri picked up a gutshot straight draw. Someone yells, "At least you've got his outs"
The turn card is the 6, and Mohajeri needs an ace, a queen, or a jack to bust Klier here.
The river card is the A, and the crowd reacts as Mohajeri pairs his ace to win the pot. Ben Klier is eliminated in sixth place, earning $148,427. With that pot, Kia Mohajeri takes a huge chip lead.
