Scott Margereson raised UTG+1 to 550,000, leaving himself just 25K behind. Tyler Stafman moved all in from the big blind, and Margereson called all in for 575,000 with As2s.

Stafman turned over Kc4c, and Margereson needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came 8d6d4s10sKs, and while Stafman rivered two pair, that same river card gave Margereson an ace-high flush to win the pot and double up in chips.

Scott Margereson  –  1,375,000  (9 bb)
