After a flop of KcQs4s, Scott Levitt checked the hijack, Yaroslav Nakonechnyy bet 30,000 from the button, and Levitt check-raised all in for about 80,000.

Nakonechnyy called with AcKs for a pair of kings, and Levitt turned over Kh9h for a pair of kings with a lower kicker. Levitt needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the 2h, the river card was the 6c, and Nakonechnyy won the pot with a pair of kings and his ace kicker to eliminate Levitt from Flight 1A.

Yaroslav Nakonechnyy  –  285,000
Scott Levitt  –  Eliminated
