A player moved all in from the cutoff for 28,500, and Stuart Paterson called from the small blind with AsAc. His opponent turned over KhJs, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Jc9d6c9h10d, and his opponent paired his jack on the flop, but improved no further. Paterson won the pot with his pocket aces to eliminate his opponent from the tournament.

Stuart Paterson  –  140,000  (70 bb)
