Arjun Pasricha hits the rails

There's a preflop raise by Jim Ramchand to 1000 which is called by Patrick M. Arjun Pasricha starts counting off his chips and decides to shove his stack into the middle. His stack's 32850 and after a bit of thought, Patrick makes the call putting Pasricha's tournament life at risk.

Arjun Pasricha {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}
Patrick M {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}
Board {5-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}

So a set of Cowboys for Patrick on the flop which is bettered when he hits the full house Kings full of Queens on the river. So with that we lose our second and possibly final elimination for the day as the tournament clock indicates play will end after the completion of this blind level a few minutes from now.

On the turn {8-Hearts}, Bansal bets out 14000 and once again Patrick just flatcalls. The {9-Hearts} opens on the river. Patrick being the first to act makes 21525. Bansal tank calls to see Patrick holding the nuts with {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts} completing his flush on the river. Bansal mucks his hand and a sizeable amount of chips goes Patrick's way.

Patrick M makes it 2400 before the flop with 2 callers in Bhuvan Bansal and Chevalier Gael. The flop is {A-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{4-Clubs} which is checked by all three players.

On the turn {8-Diamonds}, Gael makes it 3000 and gets flatcalled by Patrick and Bansal. The river {3-Diamonds} sees Gael go all-in with 11325 prompting a few raised eyebrows by the rest of the table. Patrick folds while Bansal goes into the tank. Bansal eventually open mucks {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} and send over that pot to Gael who chucks his hand into the muck.

Bhuvan Bansal makes it 1800 preflop and a couple of callers in Jim Ramchand and Chevalier Gael. On the flop of {K-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, Ramchand makes 3500 and a call from Gael while Bansal folds.

The turn {7-Diamonds} has Ramchand raising it to 5000 and another flatcall from Gael. A fourth club hits the river {7-Clubs} which is checked by Ramchand. Gael commits the rest of his stack into the middle. Ramchand with {5-Spades}{5-Hearts} makes the call with a fullhouse which has Gael's nut flush {A-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} dominated!
Gael is now down to just about 1/3rd of the starting stack.
