Sinan Aydogan Eliminated in 8th Place ($27,060)

Sinan Aydogan

Sinan Aydogan made it 200,000 under the gun and Sean Giesbrecht pushed all in for 900,000 exactly.

Aydogan snap called with the {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} and it was a classic cooler with Giesbrecht on the {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}.

The board rolled out {4-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} to the turn, but as we mentioned before, it's Giesbrecht's birthday, and the poker gods handed him a gift with the miracle {k-Diamonds} on the river, doubling him up.

Aydogan was left with 30,000 in chips and although he doubled once, and split a pot a hand later, his luck ran out the very next hand when his pocket sevens lost a race to big slick.

Sean Giesbrecht's Birthday Cake
Sean Giesbrecht's Birthday Cake

Today is Sean Giesbrecht's birthday, and although he wouldn't reveal how old he is turning, he did share some of the delicious birthday cake his wife organised for him! Playing for just over $275k, he was happy to share the cake with the rest of his final table mates (and some of us on Media Row!).
