Shankar Pillai

Shankar Pillai shoved from the cutoff for just over 300,000 and so did Kevin Eyster on the button with the bigger stack. The rest of the table folded so the cards could go on their backs.

Shankar Pillai: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Kevin Eyster: {a-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

The board ran out {4-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} for Eyster to hit top pair and improve to trips on the turn to eliminate Pillai in 14th place.
