Joey Weissman got it all in from the button for roughly 17,000 with KhJh, and needed to improve to stay alive against the Ah8h of Aram Zobian in the small blind.

The board came Qc8s3cAsKc, and Zobian paired his eight on the flop and his ace on the turn to win the pot and eliminate Weissman from the tournament.

Aram Zobian  –  140,000  (93 bb)
