The board was down {3-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{2-Spades}{q-Spades} when Martin Zamani, in the big blind, check-called a 200,000 bet from Mike Watson.

When the river was revealed to be the {2-Hearts}, Zamani checked again. Watson bet 600,000 and Zamani put his 850,000 stack into the middle. Watson, who was covered by Zamani, called and they revealed their hands.

Martin Zamani: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}
Mike Watson: {q-Diamonds}{j-}

It was house-over-house as Zamani had slow played pocket aces and Watson was the next player to hit the rail in 9th place for $54,831.

The players are now just one more elimination from reaching the unofficial final table.
