UTG (340K) raises to to 14000 at the 3k/6k blind level. I had not seen her get out of line and she has about 340k. 2 callers, Hero calls in SB with J8o.

Flop is A J 8 rainbow. Checks around.

Turn is a Jack. Hero bets 36K into 68K, UTG calls.

River is a 6. So the final board is 6 8 J J A with no flush possibilities. Hero bets 77K, villain shoves for about 200k more.
