Peter Muehlbek raised from middle position to 30,000, Jamal Sawaqdeh moved all in from the button for 100,000, and Wehner Rodriguez moved all in over the top from the big blind for 140,000. Muehlbek tanked for a while before he folded.

Sawaqdeh turned over AcQs, and needed to improve to stay alive against Rodriguez’s 9s9c.

The board came Kc5h3c7h3h, and the pocket nines held up for Rodriguez to win the pot and eliminate Sawaqdeh in ninth place.
