A few minutes later, with the board showing KcQh10h7h on the turn, Roman Fomin moved all in from the big blind.

Grow called from the hijack with KhJh for a pair of kings with an open-ended straight draw. Fomin turned over Kd2h for a pair of kings with a lower kicker, and he needed a deuce on the river to stay alive.

The river card was a blank, and Grow won the pot with his higher kicker to eliminate Fomin in ninth place.
