With the board showing 10h8s6cQh on the turn, the player on the button had a bet of 11,000 out, and Ari Dinov had moved all in from the big blind for 32,100.

The button thought for a while before he called with KdJs for an open-ended straight draw.

Dinov turned over 9s7h for a ten-high straight, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The river card was the Jh, and Dinov won the pot with a jack-high straight to double up in chips.

Ari Dinov  –  81,000  (135 bb)
