Makan Salimi doubled his 3.5M stack at the expense of Karl Sahyouni. Salimi’s flopped an ace, and Sahyouni’s did not manage to catch up.
Alex Barbosa was then the victim of a bad beat. His got undone by Sahyouni’s when the board revealed a nine.
Barbosa got $16,000 for his 4th place finish. Congratulations!
Salimi now has about 8.5M, Ellis has about 6.5M, and Sahyouni has 4M. Despite the difference between the counts, they decided to chop what they could – they took $16,160 each – and $3,000 extra will go to the winner.
