Shurland George was all in from the cutoff for 250,000, Amir Baron called or raised from the button, and Hector Pacheco folded 3x3x face up from the big blind.

George turned over QhJc, and needed to improve to stay alive against Baron’s 4h4c.

The board came Qs4s3d10c6d — George paired his queen on the flop, but it was no good as Baron flopped a set of fours, which held up to win the pot and eliminate George in ninth place.

Pacheco was fortunate he didn’t make it to the flop, or he would have lost a massive pot and been eliminated or left with scraps.

Amir Baron  –  1,270,000  (51 bb)
Shurland George  –  Eliminated in 9th Place  ($2,055)

With eight players remaining, the average chip stack is about 680,000 (27 big blinds), and the next player to be eliminated will earn $2,555.
