With the board showing QdJc8h7h, Phu Vo bet 900,000 from the small blind, Daniyal Gheba moved all in UTG for about 2.1 million, and Vo paused for a moment before he called with 8d7c for two pair, eights and sevens.

Gheba turned over Js9s for a pair of jacks with a gutshot straight draw, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The river card was the 8s, and Vo won the pot with a full house, eights full of sevens, to eliminate Gheba in 31st place.

Phu Vo  –  7,575,000  (76 bb)
