Ryan Tosoc limped in from the cutoff and Luis Velador checked his option in the big blind. The flop came {k-Clubs}{10-Spades}{8-Spades} and Velador checked to Tosoc who bet 60,000. Velador check-raised to 300,000 and Velador called.

The turn was the {7-Clubs} and Velador jammed all in for his last 160,000. Tosoc snap-called and the cards were on their backs.

Ryan Tosoc: {q-Hearts}{j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Luis Velador: {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}{6-Spades}{2-Hearts}

Tosoc turned a straight while Velador held a straight and flush draw. He would need to catch a spade or a queen on the river but the {5-Hearts} completing the board was no help. Velador went from one of the chip leaders to out in 13th place in the span of one level.
