Hand #100: Sam El Sayed Eliminated in 8th Place ($119,464)
Level 25: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante
Hand #100 - Sam El Sayed moves all-in for 325,000 from the cutoff and Galen Hall calls on the button. El Sayed shows 55 and Hall turns over A10.
The 101010 flop hits Hall square in the face as he makes quads to leave El Sayed drawing completely dead. The turn and river bring an inconsequential 4 then Q and El Sayed is eliminated in 8th place.
With El Sayed's elimination, the Season IX Player of the Year race is over. Andy Frankenberger locks up the title after a long day of sweating the WPT World Championship action.
Galen Hall - 4,650,000 (78 BBs)
