With the board showing As10s9c4h on the turn, Daniel Swartz checked, Nipun Java bet, and Swartz check-raised all in for about 135,000.

Java called with AcKh for top pair, top kicker, but Swartz turned over 10h9d for two pair, tens and nines. Swartz needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The river card was the 3s, and Swartz won the pot with his two pair to double up in chips.
