David Moreno raised from the button to 42,000, and Lewe Thiesen called from the big blind.

The flop came Jh10d7d, Thiesen checked, Moreno bet 35,000, and Thiesen check-pot-raised to 207,000. Moreno three-bet all in, and Thiesen called all in for about 360,000.

David Moreno:  10s9c8s7c  (jack-high straight)
Lewe Thiesen:  AdKs7s6d  (pair of sevens, ace-high flush draw, gutshot straight draw)

The turn card was the 6s, the river card was the 4c, and Thiesen turned two pair, but improved no further. Moreno won the pot with his straight to eliminate Thiesen in third place. Moreno also collected the $500 bounty on Thiesen.
