Pasquale Caiazza moved all in from middle position for 220,000, and Mike Shanahan used one of his Time Chips to tank for nearly a minute before he moved all in over the top from the hijack for 360,000. Everyone else folded.

Caiazza turned over AcQc, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against Shanahan’s Ah10c.

The board came Kh7c5hAdQh, and Caiazza won the pot with two pair, aces and queens, to double up in chips.

Pasquale Caiazza  –  480,000  (32 bb)
Mike Shanahan  –  140,000  (9 bb)
