Event #84: The Closer - $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Khalili Doubles Up and Not Once, But Twice

• Level 26: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

In the first hand, Sohale Khalili moved all in from under-the-gun for his last 65,000, and when action got to Gabriel Andrade in late position he three-bet to175,000 to isolate and the remaining players got out of the way.

Sohale Khalili: {k-Diamonds}{6-Spades}
Gabriel Andrade: {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

Khalili was behind but had two live cards and hit one on the river on the {10-Spades}{4-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} runout. Andrade was left short and was eliminated two hands later.

In the second hand, action folded to Jared Kwong in the small blind and he shoved all in. Khalili made the call and was again all in for his tournament life, only that time he was ahead and needed his hand to hold.

Sohale Khalili: {q-Spades}{9-Hearts}
Jared Kwong: {j-Spades}{8-Hearts}

The board ran out {8-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}, which paired Khalili's queen on the turn and secured his second-straight double-up.

Jared Kwong us 1,575,000 1,246,000
Sohale Khalili us 360,000 -323,000
Gabriel Andrade us Ausgeschieden
