Pedro Jimenez raised to 65,000 from under the gun. Mika Kakkonen three-bet to 260,000 from the big blind and Jimenez called. Both players checked the {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{J-Hearts} flop. On the {5-Diamonds} turn, Kakkonen bet 300,000, Jimenez shoved around 900,000, and Kakkonen called.

Mika Kakkonen: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}
Pedro Jimenez: {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

Kakkonen was massively ahead with his Royal Flush draw, as Jimenez couldn't muster up more than a straight draw.

Slowly, the dealer flipped over the river card. It was the {10-Spades}, completing Kakkonen's Royal Flush! Everyone at and around the table gasped upon seeing the elusive hand show up, while Jimenez had an incredible story to tell on the way out.

With Jimenez' bustout, the final table is now set.
