After a flop of 8d3d3c, Daniel Clifford checked from the cutoff, Wasim Assaf moved all in from the button for 3,175,000, and Clifford called with JsJh for two pair, jacks and threes.

Assaf turned over Ks8s for a lower two pair, eights and threes, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

Assaf failed to improve on the turn or the river, and Clifford won the pot with his pocket jacks to eliminate Assaf in 12th place.
