Jake Schwartz min-raised UTG+1 to 800,000, Scott Woodring moved all in from the hijack for 4,300,000, and Juan Maceiras moved all in over the top from the cutoff for about 11,600,000. Schwartz folded, saying later that he had pocket nines.

Woodring turned over AhKh, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against the AsQd of Maceiras.

The board came Kc8h4h4s3h, and Woodring paired his king on the flop and rivered an ace-high flush to win the pot and double up in chips.

Scott Woodring  –  10,400,000  (26 bb)
Juan Maceiras  –  7,300,000  (18 bb)
