After a flop of Jd8h4h, Alexander Yen bet 45,000 from the small blind, Lateshia Mullings raised from the big blind to 125,000, and Yen moved all in.

Mullings called all in for 570,000 with Qh9h for a heart flush draw with a gutshot straight draw, and she needed to improve to stay alive against Yen’s Jc4s (two pair).

The turn card was the Ks, the river card was the 7s, and the two pair held up for Yen to win the pot and eliminate Mullings in 47th place.
