After a flop of Kd10d4d, Rene Herrera checked, Carlos Guerrero bet, Herrera raised, and Guerrero moved all in. Herrera called, and they turned over their cards.

Rene Herrera:  Jd7d7h6c  (diamond flush)
Carlos Guerrero:  KhKc4h3s  (set of kings)

Even with a set of kings, Guerrero needed to improve to stay alive against Herrera’s flush.

The turn card was the 3c, the river was the Ac, and the flush held up for Herrera to win the high. Herrera also caught a runner-runner 7-6 low for good measure to scoop the pot, eliminating Guerrero in ninth place.

Rene Herrera  –  150,000  (25 bb)
Carlos Guerrero  –  Eliminated in 9th Place  ($970)

With eight players remaining, the average chip stack is about 153,000 (26 big blinds), and the next player to bust will receive $1,125.
