In the next hand after the elimination of Gytis Lazauninkas, Aram Oganyan moved all in from the hijack for about 2.6 million, and Joe McKeehen called from the big blind for 740,000 with AcKs.

Oganyan turned over 8s8c, and McKeehen needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Qs4h2d5h8d, and Oganyan won the pot with a set of eights to eliminate McKeehen in seventh place.
