Aissani Sends One to the Rail

KaleGozer • Nível 6: 200-400, 50 ante

Mohamed Aissani, who had a deep run in the 2016 EPT Main Event (11th - €59,500), picked up {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds} and raised the action. After two callers, a player in middle position shoved his stack of 26,000 into the middle.

Aissani reshoved all in and found himself up against {K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}. The poor soul with king-jack didn't stand a chance against Aissani's monster and was forced to the rail after five blanks.
