Steve Veneziano, Jr. moved all in from the button for 1,225,000, and Dominique Mosley thought for a while before calling from the big blind with QcJc.

Veneziano turned over Jd9d, and he was dominated as he faced elimination.

The board came Jh8d7dKc6h — both players paired their jack on the flop, and Veneziano picked up a diamond flush draw. But neither improved further, and Mosley won the pot with his pair of jacks and queen kicker to eliminate Veneziano in third place.
