Erik Seidel raised from the cutoff, Aram Oganyan reraised from the small blind, and Seidel moved all in for roughly 400,000.

Oganyan called with AhAd, and Seidel turned over QhQc. Seidel needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came AcKhQs9h4s, and both players flopped sets, with Oganyan winning the pot with his set of aces to eliminate Seidel in 19th place.
