Clifford Conners raised from the cutoff to 10,000, Alex Funes moved all in from the button for 52,000, and Conners called with 6h6c.

Funes turned over AhQc, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Jd7h5c3cAs, and Funes spiked a last-minute ace on the river to win the pot and double up in chips.

Alex Funes  –  117,000  (23 bb)
Clifford Conners  –  168,000  (34 bb)
