Brian Hastings moved all in from the small blind for about 800,000, and Saber Hamrouni called from the big blind with Jd10d.

Hastings turned over Ah2d, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came Qs8c5cJc6h, and Hamrouni paired his jack on the turn to win the pot and eliminate Hastings in third place.
