Wagner Wysotchanski raised from the cutoff to 2,200, Darryll Fish reraised from the button to 5,200, and the player in the big blind moved all in for 31,100.

Wysotchanski tanked for a long time before he folded, and Fish thought for a bit before he called with AhQh.

The big blind turned over 7h7c, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came 10c9s4cAc8s, and Fish paired his ace on the turn, and faded clubs and sevens on the river to win the pot and eliminate his opponent.

Darryll Fish  –  175,000  (175 bb)
