Steve Karp got it all in from the small blind for 1,275,000 with JhJd, and needed it to hold to stay alive against the 3s3h of Robel Andemichael in the big blind.

The board came 8s5s4hJsKd — Karp turned a set of jacks to Andemichael’s spade flush draw, and the river card was a blank. Karp won the pot with his set to double up in chips.
