Jerry Wong min-raised from the hijack to 400,000, Marius Gierse reraised from the big blind to 1,500,000, and Wong tanked for a while before he four-bet all in.

Gierse quickly called all in for 6,675,000 with QsQd, and Wong turned over AcKc. Gierse needed his queens to hold to stay alive.

The flop came Qc10c5h, and Gierse flopped a set of queens to Wong’s gutshot Royal Flush draw.

The turn card was the 7h, the river card was the 7d, and the Gierse won the pot with a rivered full house, queens full of sevens, to double up in chips.

Marius Gierse  –  13,650,000  (68 bb)
