Jay Sharon raised from middle position to 5,000, the player in the big blind reraised to about 27,000, and Sharon moved all in.

The big blind called all in for about 65,000 with AsAd, and needed it to hold to stay alive against Sharon’s 10s10d.

The board came 7c5h5d8s10h, and Sharon spiked a ten on the river to win the pot with a full house, tens full of fives, eliminating his opponent from the tournament.
