Scott Bohlman raised from middle position to 10,000, Leo Taffe reraised from the button to 26,000, and Bohlman moved all in.

Taffe called all in for 116,000 with AsAd, and Bohlman turned over KsKc.

The board came Qs8s8d4dAh, and Taffe rivered an unnecessary full house, aces full of eights, to win the pot and double up in chips.

Leo Taffe  –  245,000  (49 bb)
Scott Bohlman  –  385,000  (77 bb)
