A player got it all in from the small blind with AcKh, and needed to improve to stay alive against the 10h10c of Tommy Morgado in the big blind.

The board came Qc10d5c2h4s, and Morgado flopped a set of tens to his opponent’s gutshot straight draw, but the last two cards missed the draw. Morgado won the pot with his set of tens to eliminate his opponent from the tournament.
