Salaburu Doubles Through Hellman

Erik Hellman opened to 200,000 only to have Robert Salaburu three-bet to 400,000 from right next door. It folded back to Hellman and he announced all in. Salaburu snap called for his tournament life with {K-Diamonds}{k-Spades} which was ahead of Hellman's {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

The board ran {9-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} and Salaburu's kings were able to hold, awarding him a double up to about 7,000,000 in chips.

Niels van Alphen - 30th Place
Niels van Alphen - 30th Place

Niels van Alphen's Main Event run has come to an end near the end of Day 6.

In his final hand, Cylus Watson started things with a raise to 215,000 from under the gun, and when it folded to van Alphen he pushed all in for 1.12 million. It folded back to Watson who called, showing {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}. Meanwhile, van Alphen was hoping to improve his {A-Spades}{K-Spades} and survive.

The board brought nothing useful for van Alphen, however, coming {5-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}, and he's out in 30th.

Shahriar Assareh - 31st Place

Marc Ladouceur opened with a raise to 210,000 from the button, then Shahriar Assareh declared he was all in from the small blind. A count showed the reraise was for about 2.28 million total. Robert Corcione then said he was reraising all in over the top from the big blind, and Ladouceur tossed his cards.

Assareh: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}
Corcione: {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}

Bad timing for Assareh, having run into the better pocket pair of Corcione. The community cards came {6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}, and Assareh is out in 31st.

Tomas Samol - 32nd Place

Tomas Samol raised to 200,000 only to have Elisabeth Hille move all in for 475,000. Action folded back to Samol and he opted to move all in for 2.445 million, which Hille quickly called.

Samol: {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}
Hille: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}

Samol was behind and looking for either an ace or some other options headed to the flop, which came down {4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. Hille held the only diamond, but Samol did pick up a wheel draw.

"Diamond," Hille's supporters called from the bleachers on the ESPN Main Stage knowing one would put an end to the hand. Sure enough, the {K-Diamonds} was put out on the turn and Samol was left drawing dead. The meaningless {5-Clubs} was put out on the river, and Hille was pushed the pot.
