A Winner for Weiss

Gani Weiss open-shoved his last 70,000 or so from middle position, and the action folded all the way to Day 1b chip leader Alex Venovski in the big blind. Venovski tanked for nearly two minutes before cutting out enough chips to make the call, and sliding them forward.

"King-queen?" Weiss asked him.

"No," Venovski responded. "Ace-eight."

Venovski turned over {a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}, and Weiss tabled {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts}.

"Ah, f***," Venovski muttered.

The board ran {6-Clubs}{4-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, and Weiss doubled to around 150,000 chips. Venovski is still around average with 290,000 chips.
