Ryan Jones - Rio Circuit Main Event Champion - $269,327

Muruz Yohannes limps in on the button, and Ryan Jones raises to 1,000,000. Yohannes calls.

The flop comes    . Jones bets 600,000, Yohannes quickly announces that he is all in, and Jones snap-calls.

Yohannes is at risk holding    (pair of sevens) against Jones'   .

The   comes on the turn, giving Jones a set of queens, and the   river becomes inconsequential.
