A player min-raised under the gun to 120,000, Kevin Garosshen moved all in from the cutoff for 690,000, and his opponent called with 6s6d.

Garosshen turned over 8s8c, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came Qs9h2cKc10c, and the pocket eights held up for Garosshen to win the pot and double up in chips.
