Caleb Piderit raised from the button to 45,000, Darren Elias moved all in from the small blind for 185,000, and Piderit called with KhQh.

Elias turned over Ad7h, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came Qc9d2d5d10d — Piderit paired his queen on the flop, but Elias caught a runner-runner diamond flush to win the pot and double up in chips.

Darren Elias  –  410,000  (21 bb)
