Joe Yselonia

Joe Yselonia moved all in from middle position for 300,000, and the player on the button called with KhQh. Yselonia turned over Ad10s, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came KdQc5h8dJd, and the player on the button flopped two pair, but Yselonia rivered an ace-high straight to win the pot and double up in chips.
