Phil Collins raised to 550,000 under the gun and Scott Schwalich moved all in for just 25,000 more. Martin Staszko made the call from the cutoff, and then Eoghan O'Dea decided to exercise his option in the big blind with a reraise to 2 million. Both Collins and Staszko folded and the cards were turned up.
Both players shared a ten, which mean O'Dea's accompanying ace was way out in front. The was no help to Schwalich, considering he didn't hold a spade, and neither was the turn. The river gave both players a pair of tens, but as we hinted before, O'Dea's ace kicker made all the difference.
Schwalich was eliminated from the 2011 Main Event in 14th place and will take home $478,174.
