With about 60,000 chips already in the middle and the board reading {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}, Ankush Mandavia checked from the hijack to Mike Leah, in the cutoff, and he bet 20,000. After a few moments of consideration, Mandavia moved all in, and Leah quickly called to put Mandavia at risk.

Leah: {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}
Mandavia: {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}

Leah was way ahead with his set of jacks but had to fade hearts and tens, which would complete Mandavia's flush and straight draws. The {5-Hearts} on the turn put Mandavia squarely in the lead and meant Leah needed the board to pair in order to win the pot. The {6-Spades} river changed nothing, and Mandavia took the pot to double up.
