David MacDonald moved all in from the cutoff for 2,000,000, and Dusty Rudd called from the big blind with 8s8c.

MacDonald turned over KdJc, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The flop came 10d9d6h, and both players flopped gutshot straight draws.

The turn card was the Jd, giving MacDonald a pair of jacks, and the river card was the lowly 4s. MacDonald won the pot with his pair of jacks to double up in chips.

David MacDonald  –  4,300,000  (22 bb)
Dusty Rudd  –  6,750,000  (34 bb)
