Sridhar Sangannagari raised from the cutoff to 450,000, Gal Yifrach moved all in from the button for 1,425,000, and Sangannagari called with AdQd.

Yifrach turned over As4s, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 10c9d3h3dJd, and Sangannagari led the entire way and won the pot with an ace-high flush to eliminate Yifrach in ninth place.
