Ray Qartomy raised from middle position to 3,000, a player called from middle position, and Jesse Cohen moved all in from the cutoff for 25,400. Qartomy folded, and the other player called with JdJc.

Cohen turned over AdKc, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Kd9d6d2d4c, and Cohen paired his king on the flop and turned an ace-high diamond flush to win the pot and double up in chips.

Jesse Cohen  –  56,800  (47 bb)
