AJ Kelsall

Ricardo Eyzaguirre was all in for around 300,000 with KcQs from the hijack, and AJ Kelsall had him covered holding Qh9h on the button. The final board read Qd9c7d2c3d, and Eyzaguirre was eliminated in sixth place, good for $4,470.

Just a few minutes later Daniel Zucker was all in for about 200,000 with 10-7, and Kelsall had him covered holding As4c on a board that ran out ace-high. Zucker was eliminated in fifth place to take home $4,470. Kelsall increased his chip lead to 1.43 million after collecting the pot.

A fellow player at the table said “Fly Eagles Fly” after the one-two knockout punch, and it came from no less than a New York Jets fan so the final table shared a laugh.

AJ Kelsall – 1,430,000 (95 bb)
Daniel Zucker – Eliminated in Fifth Place ($6,070)
Ricardo Eyzaguirre – Eliminated in Sixth Place ($4,470)
