Sean Shah, who began the day first in the counts, faced off against Erik Christensen, who began the day second in the counts, in a massive pot.

According to the table, there was an open, a handful of calls, including Shah, and a Christensen three-bet. The remaining players in the hand folded, but Shah came along holding 8x8x.

The flop fell eight-high and Shah got three streets of action out of Christensen. On the river, they pair got the last of Christensen’s stack in and Shah was best holding top set. Christensen’s hand was unknown, but he hit the rail well shy of the money. Shah, meanwhile, took a nice chip lead into the middle stages of play.

Sean Shah – 427,000
Erik Christensen – Eliminated
