Both players checked to the turn on a board of Kc9s6c2h, Margereson moved all in for 25,000, and Wong called with Ad6s for a pair of sixes.

Margereson turned over JsJd, and he needed it to hold to stay alive.

The river card was the 10s, and Margereson won the pot with his pocket jacks to double up in chips.
