Jake Schwartz raised from the cutoff to 600,000, Scott Woodring called from the button, and Christie Yau called from the big blind.

The flop came Jh9d6d, and it checked to Woodring, who bet 1,400,000. Yau folded, and Schwartz check-raised all in for 4,500,000.

Woodring tanked for a while before he called with 4s4c, and Schwartz turned over Qc10s for an open-ended straight draw. Schwartz needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the 8h, the river card was the Jd, and Schwartz turned a queen-high straight to win the pot and double up in chips.

Jake Schwartz  –  11,300,000  (38 bb)
Scott Woodring  –  2,300,000  (8 bb)
