Vamsi Magam got it all in from the cutoff for 4,400,000 with 9h8h, and he needed to improve to stay alive against the KdKc of Andrew Pecina, who was under the gun.

The board came 9d3d3hJd10s, and Magam paired his nine on the flop, but improved no further. Pecina won the pot with his pocket kings to eliminate Magam in 12th place.
