Derek McMaster raised to 240,000 from the button and big blind Jason Berilgen called to defend his big blind.

The flop was dealt {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{q-Spades} and both players were only playing for the high hand. Berilgen check-called a bet of 120,000 on that flop and the turn was dealt {4-Hearts}.

Berilgen check-called a bet of 240,000 on the turn and did the same on the {7-Clubs} river.

McMaster showed {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Spades} and his full house was more than enough to take down the pot.

Derek McMaster opened from the button, John Esposito called in the small blind and Jason Berilgen defended his big blind. The dealer spread out {j-Spades}{8-Spades}{10-Hearts} on the flop and action checked to Esposito who pushed in a bet.

McMaster ducked and Bergilsen check-raised. Esposito moved all in over the top for 270,000 total and Berilgen called the additional 20,000.

Esposito tabled {10-Spades}{7-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for a pair of tens along with straight and flush draws. Berilgen turned over {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{4-Spades} for a pair of jacks with a straight draw.

The turn came down a {5-Clubs} and Esposito now picked up some more outs to take down the pot. A {3-Diamonds} hit the felt as a river card and failed to connect with Esposito as he was eliminated by the better high and low hand of Berilgen.
