Eric Siegel moved all in from the hijack for 240,000, and Nick Palma moved all in over the top from the cutoff with AhJs.

Siegel turned over KdJh, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The flop came Qd10s8s, giving Siegel an open-ended straight draw.

The turn card was the 5s, giving Palma additional protection with a spade flush draw.

The river card was the Qs, and Palma won the pot with a jack-high flush to eliminate Siegel in seventh place.
