After a flop of Qh5h2s with 340K in the pot, Max Kingstone checked the big blind, Andrew Wilson bet 90,000 from UTG+1, and Kingstone check-raised to 350,000.

Wilson used one of his Time Chips to tank for nearly a reraising to 875,000, and Kingstone used one of his Time Chips to tank for nearly a minute before he moved all in for about 3,640,000.

Wilson quickly called all in for 3,255,000 with AdQc for a pair of queens. Kingstone turned over 5d2d for bottom two pair, fives and deuces. Wilson needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the Ah, the river card was the 8c, and Wilson turned a higher two pair, aces and queens, to win the pot and double up in chips.

Andrew Wilson  –  6,850,000  (114 bb)
Max Kingstone  –  385,000  (6 bb)
