Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Photo: Everyone waits while Owais Ahmed (top left) considers whether to call or fold. Shooting Star Chau Giang (foreground left) moved all in, and Taylor Von Kriegenbergh (top right, in red) moved all in over the top. David Pham (foreground right) checks out the gathering crowd.
Taylor Von Kriegenbergh raises under the gun to 10,000, Chau Giang moves all in from middle position for 39,000, and Owais Ahmed reraises from the button to 85,000.
Von Kriegenbergh thinks for a bit before moving all in over the top, covering Ahmed. Ahmed tanks for a bit, clearly conflicted, before he calls. Here are their cards in descending order of chip counts:
Taylor Von Kriegenbergh: AA
Owais Ahmed: AK
Chau Giang: AK
The board comes Q7677, and Von Kriegenbergh wins the pot with a full house, sevens full of aces. Ahmed and Giang are both eliminated, and Von Kriegenbergh claims the bounty on Shooting Star Chau Giang -- $5,000 and an autographed Shooting Star bounty t-shirt.
Taylor Von Kriegenbergh - 650,000 (162 BBs)
Owais Ahmed - Eliminated
Chau Giang - Eliminated
