Sridhar Sangannagari raised from the hijack, and Dylan Smith moved all in from the cutoff for 2,600,000. Naing Thu called from the small blind, and Sangannagari folded.

Smith turned over QcJh, and needed to improve to stay alive against Thu’s AhAc.

The board came Qd5s2hKcAs, and Smith paired his queen on the flop, but improved no further. Thu won the pot with a rivered set of aces to eliminate Smith in 12th place.
