In Hand #2 of hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble, Chris O’Hara raised from the cutoff, Michael Wang moved all in from the big blind for 86,000, and O’Hara called with Kd3d.

Wang turned over AsQc, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came Ac9d8sKc10h, and Wang won the pot with a pair of aces to double up in chips.
