Championship: Brock Wilson Doubles Up

$3,500 WPT Poker Showdown Championship
$2,000,000 Guaranteed | Structure | Payouts
Level 17:  5,000/10,000 with a 10,000 ante
Players Remaining:  208 of 2,482

A player raised from early position to 20,000, the player in the cutoff reraised to 90,000, and Brock Parker moved all in from the button for 393,000. The original raiser folded, and the cutoff called with AcKs.

Wilson turned over AsAh, and he needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came 8d7c2cJh6d, and the pocket aces held up for Wilson to win the pot and double up in chips.
