More than half of the table took a flop of Kh9h3h. Simon Lam checked from the small blind, Joey Weissman checked from the big blind, Matt Waxman checked from middle position, Jason Brin checked from the hijack and John Stevenson bet 12,000 on the button.

Lam check-raised all in for about 50,000 and action quickly folded back to Stevenson, who called.

Lam showed AhJs and needed to hit a heart against Stevenson’s Ks9s.

The turn was the 5c and the river was the 5s. Lam missed his flush draw and was eliminated, while the pot was sent to Stevenson.

John Stevenson – 115,000
Simon Lam – Eliminated
