WSOP Event #10: Hevad Khan finishes 11th for $18,170

wsop2009_thn.gifPerhaps it was just never meant to be Hevad Khan's day. Down to two tables in the $2,500 PLHE/Omaha event he was held up on his way to the Rio and arrived a few minutes late in a bit of a fluster.

He was low in chips, but after two early bustouts he secured a double up and a new-found hope of stacking up nicely for an assault on the final table, bracelet and $244,862 first prize.

But it was short lived as he slipped back again and succumbed finally in 11th place, picking up $18,170 for his first deep run in this year's WSOP. The final hand summed up his day. In a Hold'em hand, he open raised the pot from the button to 42,000 and got re-popped by Najib Bennani in the small blind, effectively for all the Team PokerStars Pro's chips. He duly threw out his last 50,000 but found himself dominated.

Khan: A♠8♣
Bennani: A♦[10d]

The board missed them both, and Khan, who final tabled the WSOP Main Event in 2007, was out, just two spots from the final table here today.
