With the board showing Ad5h2h6d on the turn, Matthew Zarcadoolas got it all in with Qd9d for a diamond flush draw, and he needed to hit it to stay alive against the AcQs (pair of aces) of Carlos Bermudez in the hijack.

The river card was the 7s, and Bermudez won the pot with his pair of aces to eliminate Zarcadoolas in sixth place.

Since this is a bounty tournament, Bermudez earns $200 for the knockout.

Carlos Bermudez  –  560,000  (70 bb)
