Josh Arieh moves all in under the gun for 240,000, and Faraz Jaka calls from middle position with AK. Arieh shows AQ, and he's dominated and facing elimination.
The board comes J64K6, and Faraz Jaka wins the pot with two pair, kings and sixes, to eliminate Josh Arieh from the tournament.
Faraz Jaka - 2,640,000 (132 bb)
Josh Arieh - Out in 16th Place ($47,033)
Josh Arieh was one of the contenders for the WPT Player of the Year title, and Jaka made his path to that title a little easier by busting him. There are now five players left in the POY race: Faraz Jaka, Olivier Busquet, Shawn Buchanan, Scotty Nguyen, and Phil Hellmuth.
