A player raised UTG+1, Stewart Newman moved all in from the hijack for 95,000, and his opponent called with AhJs. But Newman turned over AsAc, needing it to hold to stay alive.

The board came Jh6d2s8h3s, and his opponent paired their jack on the flop, but improved no further. Newman won the pot with his pocket aces to double up in chips.
