Chris Lewis raised under the gun to 25,000, the player in the big blind reraised to 80,000, and Lewis four-bet all in for 477,000.

The big blind called with JxJx, and Lewis turned over AsKc. Lewis needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came KdQd4sAh4d, and Lewis paired his king on the flop and his ace on the turn to win the pot and double up in chips.
