On the turn with the board reading Qc8d5h2h, Anderson Blanco checked from the small blind and Jorge Gomez moved all in from under the gun for about 140,000.

Blanco called and the cards were tabled. Blanco showed 8h8s, good for a set of eights, and had Gomez’s KdQd drawing dead.

The river was the irrelevant 6s and Gomez was eliminated, while Blanco chipped up.

Gomez earned $849 for his efforts and Blanco now has a top three chip stack as the final table approaches.
