Jim Rumptz doubled through Jack Rovello with AJ against Jack’s pocket 8s.  The flop came Q 9 8 giving Jack a set, but then the turn was a Ten, giving Jim a straight.

“Pair the board!” Jack yelled, but the river was a 5.   Jim doubled up to ~600k and Jack was left with only about 190k.

He was all-in soon after holding A9 against the AJ of Ralph Dyer.  Ralph’s bigger Ace held up and he chipped up to ~700k.

Jack Rovello busted in 8th place, earning $2,888.
