A player min-raised UTG+1 to 24,000, David Guay reraised from the cutoff to 87,000 (leaving himself only about 15K behind), and Neil Zonenashvili moved all in from the small blind for about 338,000.

The UTG+1 player thought for a while before he folded, and Guay used one of his Time Chips to tank for nearly a minute before he called all in for about 102,000 with 8d8c.

Zonenashvili turned over AhQc, and Guay needed his eights to hold to stay alive.

The board came Qh6s2s5c4s, and Zonenashvili paired his queen on the flop to win the pot and eliminate Guay in 114th place.

Neil Zonenashvili  –  488,000  (41 bb)
