Ali Eslami is known as a cash game player, but today he was hoping to show off his razz skills. Unfortunately after 80 minutes the curtain has closed on his Day 2.
Eslami got his extreme short stack all in on third and was up against Rebecca Kerl and Hoyt Corkins. Kerl ended up tossing out a bet on fourth, and Corkins folded.
Corkins: (x-x) / fold
Kerl: / /
Eslami: / /
Kerl made a 7-5-3-2-A low, which bested Eslami's J-10-7-6-3. Unfortunately there will be no chip and a chair story for Eslami here in Event #7: $1,500 Seven-Card Razz.
Meanwhile, Australian pro Gary Benson and Las Vegas grinder Blair Rodman have both been eliminated from the tournament in unknown action.
