Noah Schwartz raised under the gun to 200,000, and Derek Gregory called from the cutoff. Schwartz had only 15,000 behind, and he moved all in dark before the flop.

The flop came 9s6c3d, and Gregory called with AsAd. Schwartz turned over 7h7d, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the Ac, the river card was the Js, and Gregory won the pot with a set of aces to eliminate Schwartz in 20th place.
