After a flop of Jd10d6d, both blinds check, and Matt Yorra bet 75,000 from the cutoff. William Rincon check-raised all in from the small blind for about 375,000, and Yefim Vakser folded the big blind.

Yorra called with AdJh for a pair of jacks, and Rincon turned over Js10h for two pair, jacks and tens. Rincon needed his two pair to hold to stay alive.

The turn card paired the board with the 6h, and the river card was — the Ah.

Yorra rivered a higher two pair, aces and jacks, to win the pot and eliminate Rincon in eighth place.

Matt Yorra  –  1,185,000  (49 bb)
