With the final board showing AdKc8c5h2c, the player in the big blind moved all in, and Ryan Dersch called from the hijack.

The big blind showed Ac9h for a pair of aces, but Dersch turned over AhQs to win the pot with a pair of aces and a higher kicker. The player in the big blind was eliminated shortly before the dinner break as Ryan Dersch won the pot.
