Andrew Ostapchenko raised from the hijack to 120,000, Dennis Rodriguez moved all in from the button for 835,000, and Ostapchenko called with AhJh.

Rodriguez turned over As10s, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Qh10d7s5hJs, and Rodriguez paired his ten on the flop, but Ostapchenko paired his jack on the river to win the pot and eliminate Rodriguez in 25th place.

Andrew Ostapchenko  –  2,035,000  (34 bb)
