After a flop of Qs6s5d, Dan Colpoys bet 6,000 from the small blind, the player on the button raised to 18,000, and Colpoys thought for a while before he moved all in for 47,100.

His opponent called with 8h7h for an open-ended straight draw, and Colpoys turned over AsAc. Colpoys needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the 5c, the river card was the 10s, and the aces held up for Colpoys to win the pot and double up in chips.
