Fred Goldberg got it all in from middle position with AcQh, but he needed to improve to stay alive against the AsAd of Vadim Shlez, who was under the gun.

The board came Kc6c2dQd4s, and Goldberg paired his queen on the turn, but improved no further. Shlez won the pot with his pocket aces to eliminate Goldberg.
