Ryan Hareuther raised under the gun to 1,000, Kathy Liebert reraised from the hijack to 4,000, and Hareuther called.

The flop came JhJc10d, Hareuther checked, Liebert bet, and Hareuther raised. Liebert called.

The turn card was the 2d, Hareuther moved all in for about 27,000, and Liebert called all in for about 24,000 with AsAh.

Hareuther turned over QsJd for trip jacks, and Liebert needed an ace on the river to stay alive.

The river card was the 8h, and Hareuther won the pot with his trip jacks to eliminate Liebert.

Ryan Hareuther  –  98,500  (246 bb)
Kathy Liebert  –  Eliminated
