After a flop of QsJs2c, Tom Dobrilovic checked from the small blind, Jim Collopy bet 16,000 from the cutoff, and Dobrilovic check-raised all in for about 155,000.

Collopy called with KsQh for a pair of queens, and Dobrilovic turned over 10c9h for an open-ended straight draw. Dobrilovic needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the 6d, the river card was the 10h, and Collopy won the pot with his pair of queens to eliminate Dobrilovic in 136th place.

Jim Collopy  –  430,000  (54 bb)
