Blake Napierala moved all in from the small blind for 74,000, and the player in the big blind asked for an exact count before he called with Ac8s.

Napierala turned over AhQd, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came Js4c2h10c6d, and Napierala won the pot with his queen kicker to double up in chips.

Blake Napierala  –  150,500  (60 bb)
