Mike Chiappetta got it all in from the hijack for about 170,000 with 7s7d, and needed it to hold to stay alive against the 10h9h of Ben Grise in middle position.

The board came Ah10c4sJc7h, and Grise paired his ten on the flop, but Chiappetta rivered a set of sevens to win the pot and double up in chips.

Mike Chiappetta  –  390,000  (20 bb)
