Dan Bekavac raised under the gun to 200,000, leaving himself just 25,000 behind. Mark Davis called from the hijack, and Benjamin McCoy called from the big blind.

The flop came 9h4s3s, McCoy bet 200,000, Bekavac called all in for 25,000, and Davis folded.

Bekavac turned over 7d4d for a pair of fours, but he needed to improve to stay alive against McCoy’s 9s7c for a pair of nines.

The turn card was the 9d, the river card was the 2s, and McCoy won the pot with trip nines to eliminate Bekavac in 26th place.
