Chance Kornuth moved all in from the cutoff for 1,800, the player on the button reraised to 4,000, and David Mock four-bet it from the small blind to 18,500. The player on the button folded, and Mock took the side pot.

Kornuth turned over 3s3d, and needed it to hold to stay alive against Mock’s Ah10c.

The board came 7c4c4s10s7h, and Mock paired his ten on the turn to win the pot and eliminate Kornuth, who would have been counterfeited by the two pair on the board anyway.

David Mock  –  139,000  (174 bb)
Chance Kornuth  –  Eliminated
