Kirk Steel raised under the gun to 40,000, Byron Kaverman reraised from the button to 175,000 (71% of his stack), and Steele moved all in.

Kaverman quickly called all in for 245,000 with JhJc, and Steele turned over AcQc. Kaverman needed his jacks to hold to stay alive.

The board came 6d6c3h8dAs, and Steele paired his ace on the river to win the pot and eliminate Kaverman in eighth place.
