With the board showing 9d7d2hKh on the turn, Julio Delgado checked from the big blind, Mark Edward Kerness bet 125,000 from the button, and Delgado called.

The river card paired the board with the Ks, Delgado moved all in for about 290,000, and Kerness quickly called.

Delgado showed Qh5h for a bluff, and Kerness turned over KdJd for a flopped flush draw that caught running kings to win the pot with trip kings. Delgado was eliminated in third place.
