Dennis Rodriguez moved all in from the hijack for 2,250,000, and Christie Yau tanked for a while before she called from the cutoff with Ac9c.

Rodriguez turned over Jh8h, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Jc7s2d8d10s, and Rodriguez paired his jack on the flop and his eight on the turn, but Yau rivered a jack-high straight to win the pot and eliminate Rodriguez in 14th place.

Christie Yau  –  7,500,000  (30 bb)
