After a flop of Qd7s4s with about 22K already in the pot, Jonathan Jaffe bet 7,000. Danny Shiff raised from the hijack to 19,000, and Gregory Anda moved all in from the button for about 57,000.

Jaffe folded, and Shiff thought for a few moments before he called all in for 46,700 with KsKd.

Anda turned over KcQc for a pair of queens, and Shiff needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the 5h, the river card was the 8d, and the pocket kings held up for Shiff to win the pot and double up in chips.

Danny Shiff  –  123,000  (154 bb)
Gregory Anda  –  10,000  (13 bb)
