Rafael Reis just got moved to the table a hand or two earlier, and he raised from the hijack to 30,000. Sean Shah moved all in from the cutoff for 240,000, and Reis thought for a while before he called with Ah9h.

Shah turned over KcJs, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 7s4h2c2d5c, and Reis won the pot with his ace to eliminate Shah in 186th place.

Rafael Reis  –  1,160,000  (77 bb)
