Victor Figueroa raised to 3,500 from the hijack, David Coleman called from the button, and the player in the small blind three-bet all in for 8,000. Matt Zarcadoolas four-bet all in about 49,000 and both Figueroa and Coleman folded.

Zarcadoolas showed Qc9c, leading the small blind’ 9d2d.

The board ran out 10dKhAhQh8c, safe for Zarcadoolas to score the elimination.

“I folded a Royal,” laughed Coleman.
