James Hoeland opened for the pot, a bet of 35,000, from the cutoff and Kevin Saul called from the button. The flop came and Hoeland led out for a pot-sized bet of 85,000, leaving himself with just shy of 70,000. Saul thought for a moment and announced he was all in. Hoeland made the call and the players turned their hands over:
James Hoeland: for a pair of aces
Kevin Saul: for two pair, kings and sixes plus a flush draw
The turn did nothing to change the hand other than giving Hoeland a gutshot straight draw as it was the . Hoeland would need a ten, ace, queen, or jack (that was not a club) to stay alive. The river was the improving Saul's two pair to kings and nines and that was enough to send Hoeland to the cashier to collect his 12th place winnings.
