Five players see a flop of Qc10s4s, and it checked to the button, who a player in late position who bets 1,000, Ray Qartomy called from the big blind, and Mario Hudson check-raised all in from under the gun.

Everyone else folded, and Qartomy called all in for about 28,000 with Js9s for a spade flush draw with an open-ended straight draw. Hudson turned over AsAc, and Qartomy needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the 4h, the river card was the Qd, and the pocket aces held up for Hudson to win the pot and eliminate Qartomy.

Mario Hudson  –  82,000  (164 bb)
Ray Qartomy  –  Eliminated
