Ghaneian Crippled, then Eliminated in 12th Place ($6,949)

• Level 19: 6,000-12,000, 1,500 ante
Arash Ghaneian

Ghaneian: (x)(x) / {k-Spades}{2-Spades}{q-Spades}{5-Diamonds} / (x)
Buchman: (x)(x) / {5-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{5-Spades} / (x)

Arash Ghaneian is the first causality of the day. He started the day with 77,000, but lost most of it on the hand above. Eric Buchman and Ghaneian capped the bets on third street, then Ghaneian led out on fourth and fifth street, and Buchman called both times. On sixth street, Buchman took over the betting when he paired his five, then bet seventh as well. Ghaneian called both times, then mucked when Buchman revealed {3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{3-Clubs} for a six high straight.

Three hands later, Ghaneian was all in on third street, and fell behind early when Vasili Lazarou made a pair of aces on fourth. Ghaneian was drawing to an inside straight draw on seventh street, and missed, kncoking him out of the tournament.
