After a flop of 7h5s3c, Federico Alcon Mendez checked under the gun, and Duff Charette bet 2,000 from middle position. The player on Charette’s left called from middle position, and Mendez also called.

The turn card was the 4c, Mendez checked, and Charette bet 7,500. The next player moved all in for 18,500, and Mendez moved all in over the top for a little over 100,000. Charette tanked for a fairly long time before calling all in for 45,600.

Federico Alcon Mendez:  3s3h  (set of threes)
Duff Charette:  AsAh  (pair of aces)

The river card was the Kd, and Mendez won the entire pot with his set of threes to eliminate both players on the same hand.

Federico Alcon Mendez  –  167,000  (334 bb)
