William Kakon raised to 160,000 from the button, and Bryce Yockey called from the big blind.

The flop came {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}, and the rest of the chips went into the middle in a quick flurry of action, with Kakon at risk.

Kakon: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}{J-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Yockey: {9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades}

Yockey had the lead with two pair, nines and sixes, and Kakon needed help from the deck in order to preserve his tournament life. The {7-Hearts} turn and {2-Clubs} river changed nothing, and Yockey took the pot to eliminate Kakon.
