Henrik Hecklen raised to 22,000 from under the gun and Jesus Cortes called in the hijack. Adrian Mateos shoved from the cutoff for 56,000 and action folded back to Hecklen who shoved with the biggest stack. Cortes called for the 498,000 he had behind.

Adrian Mateos: {k-Spades}{q-Spades}
Jesus Cortes: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
Henrik Hecklen: {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

The board ran out {3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} for Cortes to hold with the higher pocket pair to take Mateos out and double up through Hecklen.
