Imad Derwiche

Imad Derwiche opened to 125,000 from the cutoff and then folded to a shove by Alexandros Kolonias from one seat over, leaving himself even shorter. One hand later, Anthony Zinno raised to 100,000 and now it was Derwiche who jammed. All other opponents went out of the way and Zinno quickly called.

Derwiche: {J-Spades}{J-Hearts}
Zinno: {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}

Derwiche initially just revealed the {J-Spades} and the dealer then turned over his second card to see the Frenchman and runner up of last year at risk in a coin flip. "I need you," Derwiche said and walked behind Zinno to watch the board unfold. The flop came {10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{5-Spades} and Zinno picked up an additional flush draw.

The {4-Hearts} turn was a blank, but the {A-Clubs} river gave Zinno the best hand and Derwiche an 8th place finish for a payday of €147,710.
