With the final board showing Jd9s8c8d10s, Jerry Wong moved all in from middle position, and Michael Tweedlie called from the big blind with Qs10d for a flopped queen-high straight.

But Wong turned over JsJh to win the pot with a turned full house, jacks full of eights, eliminating Tweedlie in 23rd place.
