Brian Eisenberg min-raised from the hijack to 50,000, Georges Boyadjian called from the button, and Sam Zalmanov moved all in from the big blind for 285,000.

Eisenberg thought for a while before he folded, and Boyadjian asked for an exact count before he called with 7h7c.

Zalmanov turned over 10d10c, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came Ad8c4sQcKh, and the pocket tens held up for Zalmanov to win the pot and double up in chips.

Sam Zalmanov  –  660,000  (26 bb)
Georges Boyadjian  –  720,000  (29 bb)

With eight players remaining from a field of 179, the average chip stack is around 450,000 (18 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $1,795 each.
