Marc Duquette moved all in from the cutoff for 450,000, and Shannon Shorr used one of his Time Chips to tank for a while before he called from the big blind with Ah9c.

Duquette turned over 10h9h, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Qc9d4d6h8d, and Shorr won the pot with a pair of nines and his ace kicker to eliminate Duquette in 31st place.
