After a flop of 10h6h5s, a player in middle position got it all in with 8c7c for an open-ended straight draw, and needed to improve to stay alive against the Qh10s (pair of tens) of Luigi Shehadeh on the button.

The turn card was the Ks, the river card was the 2c, and Shehadeh won the pot with his pair of tens to eliminate his opponent from the tournament.
