After a flop of 10c9h4s, both blinds checked, and the player in the cutoff bet 2,500. The small blind called, and Steve Forman raised from the big blind to 11,500. The cutoff moved all in for 18,500, and the small blind folded.

Forman called with 10h4h for two pair, tens and fours, and the cutoff turned over Qd10d for a pair of tens. The cutoff needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the 3h, the river card was the 7c, and Forman won the pot with his two pair to eliminate his opponent.

Steve Forman  –  97,000  (194 bb)
