A slightly controversial exit for Daniel Buckley, he was all in with trip nines on sixth street against Kyle Loman's aces. The latter thought his opponent had filled up already and the dealer mucked his hand after seventh card was dealt, only for Loman to see he'd made trip aces and now had the best hand.
