Aussie Millions Main Event

Zahid Dispatched by Former Champ

Ashort-stacked Zakria Zahid was all in preflop holding {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts} and racing against the {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} of 2006 Aussie Millions champ Lee Nelson. Zahid seemed optimistic about his chances, but his optimism slowly turned to desperation as the flop came down {3-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds}, followed by the {7-Clubs} on the turn. In order to survive, Zahid needed an ace or jack on the river, but it was not meant to be as the {10-Clubs} blanked.

Zahid was eliminated on the hand while Nelson chipped up to 440,000.
