Aaron Thivyanathan

Harry Binda Jr opened to 100,000 from the button, Aaron Thivyanathan moved all in for about 500K and Binda Jr quickly called.

Thivyanathan: Ad4d
Binda Jr: AcQs

Thivyanathan was in bad shape but paired his four on the 7d6h4h flop to take the lead. He made two pair, sevens and fours, on the 7s turn but was counterfeit on the Ah river. Both players made aces up but kickers played so Thivyanathan was eliminated in ninth place.
