Event 9 played one bubble hand before the break and two more after before they dropped down to 72 players. On the second hand, Arif Amirali moved all-in over the top from the button after the cutoff open/shoved for 79,000.

The move caused Ariel Rosello to fold queens and Amirali was ahead for the knockout. Once all action was complete on the other tables, the hands were flipped up.

Amirali: JsJc
Opponent: Ad8d

Amirali needed to dodge the over card and diamonds and managed it on the 9s5c2s8h2h board to put Event 9 in the money.
