Scott Baumstein raises from the cutoff to 500,000, A.J. Kelsall moves all in from the small blind for 3,275,000, and Baumstein snap-calls with Spade JDiamond J. Kelsall turns over Club AClub 4, and he needs to improve to stay alive.

The flop comes Spade KHeart JHeart 2, and Baumstein flops a set of jacks for a huge lead. Kelsall gets up to leave, though he still has runner-runner outs.

The turn card is the Heart 10, giving Kelsall a gutshot straight draw, and he walks back toward the table to see the river card.

The river card pairs the board with the Club 2, and Baumstein wins the pot with a full house, jacks full of deuces, to eliminate Kelsall in fifth place.
