The player in the cutoff moved all in for 15,400, and Mihail Karasoulis calls from the big blind with 9d8d.

The cutoff turned over AcQs, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came Js9h7sAd10h — Karasoulis paired his nine on the flop, the cutoff paired his ace on the turn, and Karasoulis rivered a jack-high straight. Karasoulis won the pot to eliminate his opponent.
