The player in the small blind raised to 160,000, Gary Herstein moved all in from the big blind for 620,000, and the small blind tanked for a while before he called with KdQh.

Herstein turned over Ah7c, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came Jc10d4c6d4h, and the small blind flopped an open-ended straight draw, but improved no further. Herstein won the pot with his ace to double up in chips.
