Blinds: 12,000/24,000 ante 4,000
Ryan Jones moved all in from under the gun for around 220,000. Mordechai Mordiano was in the hijack and reraised all in for around 675,000. Ivan Zarate was on the button and called all in for 551,000. All the sudden, we had a three-way all-in on our hands. Here is what everyone had:
Mordiano called for the seven and got it when the flop fell [7d4d3s]. The turn brought the [6s], giving Zarate a flush draw.
It was now Zarate's turn to call for a card. "Spade! Spade!"
The river was the [Qs], giving Zarate his flush, a knockout, and a gigantic seven-figure pot shortly before the dinner break.

Mordechai Mordiano - 120,000
