Hand #63: Samad Razavi Eliminated in 4th Place ($153,682)

Samad Razavi is under the gun, and he moves all in for 1.7 million. Jesse Sylvia is next to act, and after 30 seconds of thinking, he announces "call." It folds to Thiago Nishijima, who checks his cards one at a time. He only thinks for about 15 seconds before he moves all in for 5.2 million.

The entire mothership stands up, as Nishijima's rail starts to go crazy. Sylvia immediately has a disgusted look on his face, and announces "this is so sick." The whole dome is abuzz as Sylvia goes deep into the tank. He asks for an exact count, and quickly starts crunching the pot odds out loud. He tanks for over three minutes before releasing his hand, and Razavi immediately says "Please show me Ace-King!"


Razavi gets his wish, and is in a coin flip situation to triple up and become a serious threat at the table. He fades the flop of    , and Nishijima rail is clamoring for an ace or a king. The turn is paint, but it's the  , and Razavi is still out in front.


Nishijima and his rail go nuts as Razavi crumbles to his knees, with his hands over his face. After a few moments, he gets up, and gives every player left a handshake and a hug.

Nishijima drags the massive pot, and with that, takes the chip lead in this three handed battle.

Thiago Nishijima - 7.8 million
Samad Razavi - Eliminated
