The player in the hijack raised to 12,000, the button called, and the player in the small blind moved all in for 103,000. David DiBernardi moved all in over the top from the big blind for about 320,000, and the other two players folded.

The small blind turned over AdJc, and needed to improve to stay alive against DiBernardi’s AhAc.

The board came KdJd3s3d6s, and the small blind paired his jack on the flop and turned a diamond flush draw, but missed all of his outs on the river. DiBernardi won the pot with his pocket aces to eliminate his opponent from the tournament.
