Andrew Barfield raised from the cutoff to 110,000, Nicholas Immekus moved all in from the button for 630,000, and Barfield called with AdJc.

Immekus turned over 9s9h, and needed his pocket pair to hold to stay alive.

The board came Ac6h2dQs7s, and Barfield paired his ace on the flop to win the pot and eliminate Immekus in 51st place.
