The player in the hijack limped in, Alejandro Funes raised to 8,500 from the cutoff, the player on the button called and the hijack called.

The flop was 5s2h6h, the hijack checked, Funes shoved for about 35,000, the button folded and the hijack called with Qh5h for a pair of fives with a flush draw, leading Funes’ Td9s.

The turn was the 9c, giving Funes a pair of nines to take the lead.

The river was the 7d, safe for Funes to double up.

Alejandro Funes  –  102,000  (41 bb)
