Peter Eichhardt and his dominant chip lead have been active participants in most of the pots so far at the PLO final table but in one of the few hands he was not in, Ivan Driard found a friendly river against Kenneth Wong to double up.

Driard raised on the button to 25,000 and Wong defended his big blind. The 10♠9♣6 flop went check-check and Wong checked the A♠ turn. Driard bet 30,000 and Wong raised enough to put his opponent all-in.

With about 60,000 behind, Driard put his final chips in with A♣AK♠5♠ for top set and a spade draw. Wong had him beat with 9♠7♠83 for a straight that had flush blockers to go with it. Driard found a spade on the 3♠ river to double up and leave Wong with 125,000.
