Following a flop of Jh8s4s, Hal Rotholz was all in for 285,000 from the big blind against “Miami” John Cernuto in the small blind.

Roltholz: QhQs8h7c
Cernuto: Ac6c5s2s

Cernuto had all the draws, while Rotholz had a pair of queens and needed to fade a lot to survive.

The turn was the 8d, improving Rotholz to trip eights.

The river was the 3s, though, giving Cernuto a flush along with the nut low, eliminating Rotholz in third place.

John Cernuto – 1,400,000 (23 bb)
