The Jack of Spades Made All the Difference

Level 20: 10,000/20,000 (20,000)
Entries: 100/1,326

Jos ten Have limped from middle position for half his stack. Alberto Cigliano raised to 210,000 with just 15,000 behind. William Mitchell jammed for much more than the other two players from the big blind and both ten Have and Cigliano called off their stacks.

Jos ten Have: 9 9
Alberto Cigliano: A J
William Mitchell: A J

Normally ten Have would be in a good spot and Cigliano and Mitchell would be chopping at least a side pot if not the main pot as well. However, four spades ran out on the Q 2 5 5 4 board to improve Cigliano to the nut-flush to win both the main and side pots.

Albert Cigliano - 540,000
William Mitchell - 325,000
Jos ten Have - 0
