Cero Zuccarello raised under the gun to 125,000, Landon Tice called all in from the cutoff for 65,000, and the big blind also called.

The main pot was worth 285,000, with another 120,000 in the side pot.

The flop came AhKh6c, the big blind checked, Zuccarello bet 100,000, and the big blind folded. Zuccarello took the side pot.

For the main pot, Tice turned over 8s8c, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against Zuccarello’s 3h3c.

The turn card was the 2s, the river card was the 7s, and Tice won the pot with his pocket eights to triple up in chips.

Landon Tice  –  285,000  (5 bb)
Cero Zucarello  –  3,700,000  (62 bb)
