Ryan Gianquitti

Ryan Gianquitti moved all in from the hijack for 1,325,000, and Ugis Steinman tanked for a while before calling from the big blind with AsJd.

Gianquitti turned over 8s8c, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came Js8d3h4s7s, and Gianquitti flopped a set of eights to win the pot and double up in chips.
