All of the chips went in the middle before the flop and Tristan Wade was at risk for 62,000 against Nabil Cardoso.

Tristan Wade: {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Nabil Cardoso: {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}

Wade was dominated by the jack-kicker and the flop of {j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{3-Clubs} meant he was going to need some help. The {q-Diamonds} on the turn gave Wade an open-ended straight draw, but the {4-Spades} on the river was a brick and Wade was sent to the rail.
