Event #12: $1,500 Limit Hold’em

Ahmad Abghari Eliminated in 2nd Place ($117,272)

Ahmad Abghari - 2nd place

Matt Matros raised his button and Ahmad Abghari, now reduced to his lowest point chip-wise since the heads-up match began, reraised out of the big blind. Matros called and they saw a flop.

Flop: {q-Spades}{4-Spades}{4-Diamonds}

Abghari bet out, Matros raised. Abghari paused very briefly before calling.

Turn: {3-Clubs}

Abghari bet out again and this time didn't hesitate when Matros raised. Abghari called all in, and they were on their backs.

Abghari: a now speculative {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Matros: {q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} for two pair

River: {8-Spades}

The pot was shipped to Matros, and to a round of applause, Abghari became the runner up.
