Thomas Carroll raised from the cutoff to 100,000, Brandon Duvdivani moved all in from the big blind for 740,000, and Carroll used one of his Time Chips to tank for a while before he called with Kd10c.

Duvdivani turned over JsJh, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came As3s2d3hAd, and Duvdivani won the pot with his pocket jacks to double up in chips.

Brandon Duvdivani  –  1,555,000  (31 bb)
