With the board showing Kc10d8h9s on the turn, the player in the hijack got it all in with KdJc for a pair of kings with an open-ended straight draw, but he needed to catch a queen on the river to stay alive against the QhJh (king-high straight) of Andres Korn in the cutoff.

The river card was the Ah, and Korn won the pot with an ace-high straight to eliminate his opponent.
