The player in the cutoff moved all in for roughly 20,000, and Eric Lea called from the big blind with KsKd.

The cutoff turned over Ac10c, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came QhJc6h5dQs, and the cutoff flopped a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. Lea won the pot with his pocket kings to eliminate his opponent.

Eric Lea  –  79,000  (66 bb)
