A player raised from middle position to 2,500, the player in the small blind moved all in for 21,200, and Kathy Liebert called from the big blind.

The middle-position player moved all in over the top for 38,700, and Liebert thought for a bit before she called.

These were their cards in descending order of chip counts:

Kathy Liebert: AcJd
Middle Position: QdQc
Small Blind: Ah9h

The board came As4d2h3h6d, and Liebert flopped a pair of aces with the higher kicker, while the small blind turned a heart flush draw.

The river card was a blank, and Liebert won the entire pot with a pair of aces and a jack kicker to eliminate both of her opponents.

Kathy Liebert  –  113,000  (94 bb)
