After a flop of As4h2s, Matt Glantz bet 2,500 from the small blind, and the cutoff called. The turn card was the 7c, and both players checked.

The river card was the 8h, Glantz bet 4,000, and the cutoff quickly called. Glantz showed Ah5h to win the pot with a pair of aces, and his opponent mucked.

Matt Glantz  –  51,000  (128 bb)
