Christian Harder raised from middle position to 150,000, David Farber moved all in from the hijack for 925,000, and Harder called with AhKd.

Farber turned over 2s2c, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came Ac8h5h10s7d, and Harder paired his ace on the flop to win the pot and eliminate Farber in 23rd place.
