With the board showing Spade ASpade KClub 9Heart 2 on the turn and about 450,000 already in the pot, Steven Sarmiento checks the big blind, Roland Rokita bets 250,000 from UTG+1, and Sarmiento check-raises all in for 730,000.

Rokita calls with Diamond AClub Q for a pair of aces, and Sarmiento turns over Diamond KHeart 9 for two pair, kings and nines. Sarmiento needs his hand to hold to stay alive.

The river card is — the Club A.

Rokita rivers trip aces to win the pot and eliminate Sarmiento in 29th place.

Roland Rokita  –  1,850,000  (74 bb)
