A player raised UTG+1 to 120,000, and Roberto Berrocal moved all in from middle position for 590,000. Phillip Theard called from the big blind, and the UTG+1 player folded.

Berrocal turned over AsKh, and he needed to improve to stay alive against Theard’s 8h8d.

The board came AhJc3hQs8c — Berrocal paired his ace on the flop, but Theard rivered a set of eights to win the pot. Berrocal was eliminated in 92nd place.
