Julio Alvarez

With the flop reading Th6s5h, Chad Lipton checked from the big blind and Julio Alvarez bet 55,000 from under the gun. Lipton checked raised to 155,000 and Alvarez moved all in for about 350,000 more. Lipton quickly called.

Lipton: QdTs
Alvarez: 9s6c

Lipton was ahead with top tens versus Alvarez’s second pair sixes. The 4s turn and Qc river finished the board, Lipton finished with queens up, and Alvarez was eliminated in 14th place.
