MicroMillions 13: ElCheikhh tops Main Event for $95K in five-way deal

Jason Kirk

Ever had a friend who didn't like pocket aces? Someone superstitious who'd had them cracked one too many times and swore off the starting hand more likely to win than any other in the game of hold'em? If you do, and you care about their feelings, don't tell them about ElCheikhh's final table performance in the MicroMillions 13 Main Event. It's not the kind of story they're going to want to hear. ElCheikhh won key pots with rockets twice in an hour and a half, once early on and then again after a five-handed deal had been struck, en route to turning a $22 investment into more than $95,000.
