Faris Qumsieh raised under the gun to 65,000, Anthony Moreda moved all in from the cutoff for 230,000, and Qumsieh asked for an exact count and thought for a bit before he called with Kd6d.

Moreda turned over AsAh, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came KcJd9s6h4h, and Qumsieh paired his king on the flop and his six on the turn to win the pot with two pair, eliminating Moreda in sixth place.

With the board showing Qs9h9c9d on the turn, Elizabeth Hagensick moved all in for about 175,000, and Steven Moreno thought for a while before he called with Ad3s for the trip nines on the board with an ace kicker.

Hagensick turned over Qd10d for a full house, nines full of queens, and she needed to avoid an ace on the river to stay alive.

The river card was — the As.
