Scott Margereson raised under the gun to 100,000, Sergio Aido moved all in from the small blind for 1,010,000, and Margereson asked for an exact count and thought for a bit before he called with AhQd.

Aido turned over 9d9c, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came 8d5h4sKh10h, and the pocket nines held up for Aido to win the pot, double up in chips, and take the lead.

Sergio Aido  –  2,120,000  (42 bb)
Scott Margereson  –  1,125,000  (23 bb)

With seven players remaining, the average chip stack is about 1,215,000 (24 big blinds), and the next player to be eliminated will earn $75,580.
