On the next hand, after Joe Elpayaa was sent out, Kammar Andries was at it again. Karthik Ramakrishnan open-shoved for 325,000 and Andries called. The button and blinds released and Andries had back-to-back big aces.
Ramakrishnan had two live, suited, connected cards but neither paired or made a flush or straight on the run out. Ramakrishnan was eliminated in 14th place and that result was good enough to send him to the top of the race for the Casino Championship.
Kammar Andries – 1,925,000 (64 bb)
Karthik Ramakrishnan – Eliminated in 14th place ($15,072)
