Four players put in 25,000 each to see a flop of Qh8s7d, and it checked to Ryan Gibson on the button, who pot-bet 106,000.

Taylor Lipson folded the big blind, Andrey Markov folded the hijack, and Mariia Ievseieva check-raised all in for about 170,000. Gibson quickly called, and they turned over their cards.

Ryan Gibson:  Qd9s8c7s6h  (three pair, open-ended straight draw)
Mariia Ievseieva:  QsJs10c9c4s  (pair of queens, wrap draw)

The turn card paired the board with the 7h, and the river card tripped it with the 7c.

With no pocket pairs, both players finished with two pair, and Gibson’s queens and eights beat Ievseieva’s queens and sevens. Gibson won the pot to eliminate Ievseieva in sixth place.
