We just had a pot of almost two million chips that has seen Vivek Rajkumar, who was having a good day so far, suddenly get eliminated by Nick Schwarmann.

Rajkumar raised it up to 35,000 under the gun +1, and Schwarmann reraised to 82,000 two spots over. Action folded back around to Rajkumar, who tanked for a minute or so before four betting to 202,000. Schwarmann made the call, and the flop came down {2-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}. Rajkumar checked to Schwarmann, who moved all in after 30 seconds of thought. Rajkumar snap called, and we had a huge pot on our hands as the cards were being tabled.

Rajkumar: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}
Schwarmann: {a-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}

According to the PokerNews odds calculator, Rajkumar held a slight edge of 53% to Schwarmann's 47%, and Rajkumar's odds increased to 73% when the turn came the {K-Hearts}. Rajkumar was looking to fade an ace or a diamond, but unfortunately for him, the one-in-four shot came through, as the {5-Diamonds} hit the river.

The stacks were counted down, and it was determined that Schwarmann barely had Rajkumar outchipped. Rajkumar gave his patented "so sick," comment as the chips were being counted, then wished everyone luck while shaking hands with the players at the table before exiting the Mothership.
