Action folded to the blinds and Tim McDermott raised to 150,000 from the small. Riley reraised the pot to 450,000, McDermott four-bet, and Riley called to put himself at risk.

Tim McDermott: {J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Phil Riley: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{2-Clubs}

Riley had the lead with his aces and McDermott needed to improve in order to win the pot. The board ran out {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{K-Hearts} to give McDermott trip nines, so he took the pot to end Riley's run in this event.
