After a flop of 8s7s2d, Kenneth McKeown got it all in from the small blind for roughly 175,000 with AdKd, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against the AhJs of Florence Allera, who was under the gun.

The turn card was the 5d, giving McKeown extra protection with a diamond flush draw, and the river card was — the Jh.

Allera paired her jack on the river to win the pot and eliminate McKeown in 204th place.

Florence Allera  –  640,000  (64 bb)
