Hand #22: Curt Kohlberg Eliminated in 5th Place ($199,283)
Level 24: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Cornel Cimpan raises under the gun to 125,000, and Soheil Shamseddin calls from the cutoff, and Curt Kohlberg moves all in from the small blind for 690,000. Cimpan folds, and Soheil goes into the tank for a while, asking, "Do you want action, sir?" Kohlberg remains stoic.
Soheil eventually calls with 22, and Kohlberg shows AQ -- it's a race situation. Kohlberg needs to improve to stay alive.
The flop comes AQ5, and Kohlberg takes the lead with two pair, aces and queens. Soheil is very animated, and says that he will take a three or a four on the turn to give himself a straight draw.
The turn card is the J, and Soheil gets up and points to the spot where the river card will appear, and he requests a deuce.
The river card is -- the 2!
Soheil Shamseddin rivers a set of deuces to win the pot, and Curt Kohlberg is eliminated in fifth place, earning $199,283.
