James Carroll raised to 325,000 from under the gun and Jerry Wong moved all in from the small blind for 1,375,000. Eric Afriat called from the big blind, and Carroll folds.

Wong turns over Ah9s and needed to get lucky with Ah9s against Afriat’s QhQc.

The board came AdKdKh3h9h and Wong did indeed get lucky as he flopped an ace to stay alive.

Jerry Wong  –  3,050,000  (20 bb)
Eric Afriat  –  4,500,000  (30 bb)
