Alex Livingston raised UTG+1 to 100,000, and Ray Qartomy called from the cutoff.

The flop came 10h5h2s, Livingston bet 90,000, and Qartomy called.

The turn card was the Qh, Livingston checked, Qartomy bet 180,000, and Livingston thought for a moment before he check-raised all in.

Qartomy thought for a while before he called all in for about 280,000 with QsJs for a pair of queens, but Livingston turned over KhKc for a pair of kings. Qartomy needed to catch a queen or a jack to stay alive.

The river card paired the board with the 5s, and Livingston won the pot with his pocket kings to eliminate Qartomy in ninth place.
