Joseph Cheong had the button. Sergii Baranov raised to 60,000 from under the gun and it folded to Paul Tedeschi who moved all in for his last 470,000 from the cutoff. Cheong peeked at his cards on the button and announced a flat call.

It folded back to Baranov who thought for about a minute before letting go.

Tedeschi: {A-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Cheong: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}

The flop came down {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} giving Tedeschi a diamond draw on top of his ace for outs. The {3-Spades} bricked out for him on fourth street and the board finished off with the {2-Hearts}, allowing Cheong's queens to hold and sending Tedeschi to the rail as our 6th place finisher.
