The dealer spread the A98 flop and the blinds checked to Talerico who bet 300,000. Both opponents called.

The 5 landed on the turn and action checked to Talerico who potted. Ford called all in for about 715,000 and Xaythavone folded.

Ford: AQJ106
Talerico: 76542

Ford was in rough shape, but a heart spiked the river to give him the nut flush for the high to survive, while Talerico took the low.

Leonard Talerico – 3,275,000
Khamar Xaythavone – 1,725,000
Joe Ford – 1,325,000
