Wally Maddah calls the preflop raise of chip leader Maroun Akiki and the board comes down Q-9-8.  Maddah moves all in for 125k and Akiki snap calls.

Maddah: KQ (top pair)
Akiki: JT (straight)

There are no running full house cards for Maddah who goes out in 11th place to the flopped straight.

“I should’ve pushed preflop,” says Maddah who wonders if an all in would’ve gotten Akiki to fold. “I knew he was raising light.”

Maddah earns $919 and sends the remaining 10 players to a final table redraw.
