Boris Kravets raised UTG+1 to 2,400, the player on the button called, and the big blind moved all in for 10,000. Kravets called, and the button thought for a while before he folded.

The big blind turned over Ah10d, and needed to improve to stay alive against the 8h8d of Kravets.

The board came Kh7c6h5d2d, and the pocket eights held up for Kravets to win the pot and eliminate his opponent.
