Piotr Kordos got it all in from the small blind for about 75,000 with Ks9s, and needed it to hold to stay alive against the 10c7c of Matt Higgins in the big blind.

The board came Qc5s4c10h8d, and Higgins flopped a club flush draw, turned a pair of tens, and faded Kordos’s straight draw to win the pot and eliminate Kordos in 174th place.
