Amit Makhija eliminated by Abrams

Scott Abrams opened to 170,000 from under the gun, and Amit Makhija moved all in for 1.27 million from the cutoff. Tristan Clemencon cold-called out of the big blind, and Abrams re-jammed for effectively 2.675 million.

Clemencon went deep into the tank, and examined his stack after the bets were pulled in. While Clemencon was tanking, Makhija picked up his sweatshirt and his backpack, and looked like he was ready to leave.

"Aces?" Clemencon asked Abrams, who didn't answer.

Finally, after a good three minutes, Clemencon called.


The rail enclosed around the table as the dealer rapped the table, burned a card, and spread {q-Spades}{3-Spades}{7-Clubs}.

"There's a lot of spades still in the deck," Makhija announced.

Makhija then made reference to his "one time" before the {7-Diamonds} paired the board on the turn.

The Orange Section of the Amazon Room grew silent as the dealer rapped the table one final time, and when the {9-Hearts} fell on the river, Abram's supporters went wild. Makhija and Clemencon shook a couple of hands before exiting, and the monster pot was pushed to Adams.

By our count, the double knockout rocketed his stack to 9 million chips.
