Hand #16  –  Richard Munro raises from middle position to 75,000, Massoud Eskandari reraises from the hijack to 225,000, and Munro moves all in for 720,000.

Eskandari asks for an exact count before he calls with [5c5s]. Munro turns over [AhQd], and he needs to improve to stay alive.

The board comes [8s6s2h7s6h], and the pocket fives hold up for Eskandari to win the pot and eliminate Munro from the tournament.

Massoud Eskandari  –  3,825,000  (127 bb)
Richard Munro  –  Eliminated in 9th Place  ($32,365)
