Byron Kaverman raised from middle position to 50,000, Ray Qartomy moved all in from the cutoff for 235,000, and Kaverman called with AsJh.

Qartomy turned over AcQh, and he needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came AdKc4cJcJs — Kaverman paired his kicker on the turn as Qartomy picked up a club flush draw, but the river card gave Kaverman a full house, jacks full of aces, to win the pot and eliminate Qartomy in 16th place.
