Alex Rocha

Hand #42:

Alex Rocha raised to 50,000 from the cutoff, and Tim West three-bet to 180,000 from the button. Ben Maya called from the small blind, and Rocha shoved all in for 932,000 in total. West folded, and Maya asked for the initial raise of 180,00 to be pulled in the pot so he could see how much more he had to put in. The dealer did just that. Maya counted out the chips and some other stacks, and in the end, he called.

Ben Maya: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}
Alex Rocha: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

The board ran out {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Spades}{A-Spades}. Maya rivered an ace to give him top pair and knock Rocha out of the tournament.
