Claudio Piedrabuena moved all in under the gun for 750,000, Jacob Powers called from the hijack, and Taylor Wilson called from the big blind. Any further betting would create a side pot.

Both players checked to the river on a board of 10s6s4sAh9h, Wilson checked, and Powers bet 125,000. Wilson folded, saying he had a pair.

Piedrabuena showed 5h5c, but Powers turned over As10c to win the pot with two pair, aces and tens, eliminating Piedrabuena in 17th place.

Jacob Powers  –  4,675,000  (37 bb)
