The player on the button raised to 120,000, Joey DiPascale moved all in from the big blind for 705,000, and the button tanked for a while before he called with Kc10d.

DiPascale turned over AsAc, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came KdJd3s3c5h, and the button paired his king on the flop, but improved no further. DiPascale won the pot with his pocket aces to double up in chips.
