After a flop of Qd5s3d, Eric Panayiotou got it all in with AsJs (ace high), but he was drawing very thin against Scott Stewart’s AhAc.

The turn card was the 7h, the river card was the 8d, and the pocket aces held up for Stewart to win the pot and eliminate Panayiotou.

Scott Stewart  –  245,000  (306 bb)
Eric Panayiotou  –  Eliminated
