Josh Kay limped from the small blind for 400,000, Andrew Wilson raised from the big blind to 1,300,000, and Kay moved all in for 5,800,000.

Wilson quickly called with Ah5h, and Kay turned over 8s8d. Kay needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came 9d6d2h5dQc, and Wilson paired his five on the turn to pick up additional outs, but improved no further. Kay won the pot with his pocket eights to double up in chips.

Josh Kay  –  12,000,000  (30 bb)
Andrew Wilson  –  65,000,000  (163 bb)
