Mike Graffeo raised from the button to 80,000, Cherish Andrews reraised from the small blind to 170,000, and Graffeo called.

The flop came 5s4c2c, Andrews bet 100,000, Graffeo moved all in, and Andrews snap-called all in for about 575,000 with KhKc.

Graffeo turned over Qh3h for an open-ended straight draw, and Andrews needed her hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the Ac, the river card was the 4h, and Graffeo turned a five-high straight to win the pot and eliminate Andrews in third place.
