Aram Oganyan min-raised under the gun to 50,000, Jesse Lonis moved all in from the small blind for 355,000, and Corey Wade called all in from the big blind for 30,000. Oganyan folded.

Wade turned over As9d, and needed to improve to stay alive against Lonis’ 8s8d.

The board came QsJd4c2c6s, and the pocket eights held up for Lonis to win the pot and eliminate Wade in 11th place.
