Miguel Rivera and Martin Welch (pictured) got all in preflop and they were flipping for Welch’s tournament life. Rivera tabled KdQh and Welch showed 9c9d.

Welch was drawing dead on the turn as the dealer peeled off a board of Ad7d9d4d8h, giving Rivera a flush and the pot. Welch is eliminated in eighth place and Rivera chips up to 1,450,000 in chips.
