With the board showing 10d8h6sQh on the turn and a little more than 50K already in the pot, the player in the small blind moved all in for 40,800.

Jake Wathey was UTG+1, and he asked for an exact count and thought for a bit before he called with KhKd for an overpair.

The small blind turned over 5s5d for an underpair, and needed to catch a five on the river to stay alive.

The river card was the Jc, and Wathey won the pot with his pocket kings to eliminate his opponent from the tournament.
