Kiaran McLaughlin raised all in for about 25,000 from the small blind and Adil Khan called in the dark from the big blind.

McLaughlin:  Qd8h
Khan:  Ah2h

The flop was Qs8s2d, giving McLaughlin the lead with queens and eights. The As fell on the turn, however, giving Khan a superior two pair to pull ahead. The river was the 3s, no help to McLaughlin, ending his flight with a money-bubble finish.

Adil Khan  –  396,000  (79 bb)
Kiaran McLaughlin  –  Eliminated on the Money Bubble

With that pot, Khan bagged the Flight C chip lead, good for second overall through three flights.

Full chip counts through Flight C will be posted shortly.
