Willie Wiggins raised from the cutoff and Francois Gagne called from the big blind.

The flop was JdJc10d, Gagne shoved for about 130,000 and Wiggins called with AsJs for trip jacks, leading Gagne’s 9s8s for an open-ended straight draw.

The 2h turn and Jh river completed the board, further improving Wiggins to quad jacks to eliminate Gagne in ninth place.
