Asher Conniff raised from the hijack to 50,000, and Mike Jozoff reraised from the cutoff to 230,000, leaving himself a single 5K chip behind. Conniff moved all in, and Jozoff used all five of his Time Chips to tank for nearly three minutes before he called all in for a total of 235,000 with Ac3c.

Conniff turned over KhJc, and Jozoff needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came AhQc5s9d4d, and Jozoff paired his ace on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.

Mike Jozoff  –  535,000  (21 bb)
Asher Conniff  –  950,000  (38 bb)
