A player limped from UTG+1 for 2,500, the cutoff limped, the button limped, and Vincenzo Abate completed the small blind.

The player in the big blind moved all in for 26,000, and the next three players folded.

Abate called with Ac9c, and the big blind turned over As5s. The big blind needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Ad9s2d7dQs, and Abate won the pot with two pair, aces and nines, to eliminate his opponent from Flight 1C.
