After a flop of 10d6c2d, the UTG+1 player got it all in for about 25,000 with Ks10h for a pair of tens, but needed to improve to stay alive against the AdAd of Rob Wazwaz in the big blind.

The turn card was the 6s, the river card was the 9d, and the aces held up for Wazwaz to win the pot and eliminate his opponent from the tournament.
