Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Eslami and Deeb Trade Places

Shuan Deeb

For the second time in as many days, it seems that Shaun Deeb is hot on the comeback trail once again.

The table folded around to the blinds on the last hand, and Deeb opened to 150,000. Ali Eslami raised to put him all in, and Deeb instantly called off his 315,000 with {A-Diamonds} {J-Clubs}. Eslami could only show {A-Clubs} {7-Hearts}, and he was in trouble with more than half his chips in the middle, too.

There was a good sweat by the time the turn arrived on the {4-Clubs} {10-Clubs} {4-Diamonds} {8-Clubs} board. Eslami had some chop outs, and the clubs left in the deck would give him the clean knockout. But the river was as blank as it gets — the {2-Hearts}.

Just like that, Deeb is back out of the basement once again. He's got 630,000 now, while Eslami falls back to the short stack with 265,000 or so.
