Kihara Eliminated, Shakirov Soars

• Level 13: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante
Naoya Kihara - Eliminated

We arrived at the table after the first draw to find that Brandon Delnano, Rinat Shakirov, and Naoya Kihara were engaged in a hand that was four-bet pre-draw. On the first draw, Delnano and Shakirov each took one while Kihara opted for two.

Action checked around to Kihara and bet fired out a bet. Delnano called and Shakirov came over the top with a raise. Kihara and Delnano both called.

For the second draw, Delnano took one new card and both Shakirov and Kihara stood pat. Delnano checked, Shakirov bet, and Kihara moved all in for a bit less than two bets. Delnano folded and Shakirov called. Both players stood pat once more for the final draw.

Kihara rolled over {7-}{6-}{5-}{4-}{2-} for a seventy-six but was ultimately bested by Shakirov's wheel - {7-}{5-}{4-}{3-}{2-}. Kihara made an exit from the tournament area while Shakirov soared above 115,000.

Delnano, on the other hand, was left with just about 6,000. He was eliminated from play soon after.
