Action folded to James Vanneman on the button and he wasted little time in raising to 18,000. Eugene Du Plessis was in the small blind and looked as if he were pondering a move. After about 45 seconds, Du Plessis did just that by three-betting to 60,000, leaving himself just 45,000 behind. The big blind got out of the way and Vanneman settled on making the call.
As soon as the appeared on the flop, Du Plessis moved all in, Vanneman snapped, and the cards were turned on their backs.
Du Plessis had flopped top pair with an open-ended straight draw, but he was behind the jacks and bigger open-ended draw of Vanneman. The turn changed absolutely nothing, and neither did the river. Vanneman's jacks held to send Du Plessis to the rail in 19th place.
