Entrants: 199

The action folds around to Bob Savage in the small blind and he raises to 13,000. Byron Tipton (pictured) in the big blind shoves all-in, having Savage covered. Savage snap-calls and turns over pocket jacks:

Bob Savage - J♠J♥
Byron Tipton - 5♣5♠

Savage is way ahead but at risk, and the flop brings bad news: Q♥5♦4♦. Tipton flops a set of fives and Savage has just two outs to catch. The turn is the 6♥ and the river brings paint, but not a jack, with the K♣.

Byron Tipton - 218,000
Bob Savage - out
