$1,150 TKPT Main Event Final Day 5/84
Level 21: 5,000-10,000 / Ante 1,000
Mohan Karran raised to 25,000 from the hijack and Arman Soltani called from one seat over in the cutoff. Short stack Albert Balayn moved all in from the small blind and Karran asked for a count. The shove was for 104,000 in total and Karran folded, Soltani called after brief consideration.
Albert Balayn: 4d4s
Arman Soltani: KdQs
The flop fell JdJs9c and Soltani picked up further outs to deal the final blow to Balayn, which let Mario Eder say “that’s a good flop.” While the Jc on the turn changed nothing, the Kh river improved Soltani to the better full house and Balayn was eliminated in 6th place for $4,600.
Soltani increased his lead and moved up to 800,000.
