James Hoeland

James Hoeland opened for the pot, a bet of 35,000, from the cutoff and Kevin Saul called from the button. The flop came {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} 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: {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{3-Spades} for a pair of aces
Kevin Saul: {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{6-Hearts} 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 {Q-Spades}. Hoeland would need a ten, ace, queen, or jack (that was not a club) to stay alive. The river was the {9-Spades} 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.
