Richard Leger moved all in under the gun for 3,300,000, and Ben Boston called from the cutoff with AdKc.

Leger turned over 9s8s, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 7s7c5hKs5d — Leger flopped a gutshot straight draw and turned a spade flush draw, but he improved no further. Boston won the pot with two pair, kings and sevens, to eliminate Leger in seventh place.

Ben Boston  –  22,200,000  (44 bb)
