Clyde Maliauka moved all in under the gun for 95,000, and Donald Gibbs called UTG+1 with Ah9s. Maliauka turned over 4h4d, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came KhJsJdKs6s, and the board double-paired to counterfeit Maliauka’s pocket fours, giving Gibbs the victory with his ace kicker to eliminate Maliauka in 74th place.
