Christopher Mo raised UTG+1 to 110,000, the player in the cutoff called, and John Malczan moved all in from the big blind. Mo moved all in over the top, and the cutoff folded.

Malczan turned over KsKd, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive against Mo’s AcKc.

Mo called out for an ace, and the flop came AsKh7d, giving Mo two pair, but Malczan a set of kings.

Malczan said something like, “You should have been more specific.”

The turn card was the 10c, and the river card was — the Ah.

Mo rivered a higher full house, aces full of kings, to win the pot and eliminate Malczan in 55th place.
