The player in the cutoff raised to 35,000, Long Nguyen moved all in from the big blind for 265,000, and the cutoff called with Ac3s.

Nguyen turned over AsKh, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came Ks8c4cKd5s, and Nguyen paired his king on the flop and turned trips to win the pot and double up in chips.
