Charania Busts

• Level 7: 250-500, 75 ante
Mohsin Charania Eliminated
Mohsin Charania Eliminated

There was a large gasp from the table as Moshin Charania stood up from his chair.

Charania was all in and at risk with {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} against Chi Zhang's {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}. Charania had flopped a queen, but Zhang spiked one of the two remaining aces on the river to eliminate Charania and score an almost-full double-up.

Mike Sowers Eliminates Kevin Saul

• Level 7: 250-500, 75 ante
Mike Sowers
Mike Sowers

Kevin Saul opened to 1,200 from under the gun, and he got four callers, including Mike Sowers in the big blind.

The flop came {10-Clubs}{10-}{8-Clubs}, and it was checked to Saul, who bet 2,200. It folded to Sowers, who raised to 6,300, Saul called. The turn brought the {4-Diamonds}. Sowers moved all in for about 11 effective, and Saul called to put himself at risk.

Saul: {j-}{j-}
Sowers: {10-}{9-}

The river was meaningless, and Sowers' trip tens eliminated Saul.

Jeff Smith Rivers the Dream in a Sick Hand

• Level 7: 250-500, 75 ante

With John Racener all in preflop, Jeff Smith and another opponent headed to the flop, which came {10-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}. Both players moved all in, and everyone's hands were tabled.

Smith: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}
Racener: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Opponent: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}

Smith had been outdrawn by his opponent's flopped full house and was in trouble. The turn card was the {4-Clubs}, which changed nothing. Racener needed a jack, and Smith needed an ace.

The dealer flipped over the {a-Hearts} to complete the board, and Smith scooped the entire pot to bust both opponents.
