After a flop of Kd5c2d, David MacDonald moved all in from the big blind for 900,000, and Johnathan Norris called from the cutoff with Jd10c for jack high.

MacDonald turned over 5d4d for a pair of fives with a diamond flush draw, and he needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the 6c, the river card was the 8s, and MacDonald won the pot with his pair of fives to double up in chips.
