Jake Ferro raised under the gun to 25,000, Sean Shah called from the hijack, Darren Rabinowitz called from the cutoff, and Sheldon Libfeld moved all in from the button for 185,000.

Ferro folded, and Shah moved all in over the top for about 418,000. Rabinowitz quickly folded.

Libfeld turned over AhKc, and needed to improve to stay alive against Shah’s 8s8c.

The board came KsJc2h7cJd, and Libfeld paired his king on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.

Sheldon Libfeld  –  450,000  (38 bb)
Sean Shah  –  233,000  (19 bb)
