Rogen Chhabra raised UTG+1, Aristoteles Neto moved all in from middle position for about 50,000, and Chhabra thought for a while before he called with Ad9h.

Neto turned over Ah10c, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came KsQsQc10s9s, and Neto won the pot with a higher two pair, queens and tens, to double up in chips.

Aristoteles Neto  –  125,000  (13 bb)
Rogen Chhabra  –  365,000  (37 bb)

Action will continue tonight until the end of Level 20, around 11:30 pm or so.
