John Miller got it all in from the hijack for 1,100,000 with AsAc, and needed it to hold to stay alive against the Ah3h of Adam Pritchett, who was under the gun.

The board came 5d2s2hQs8s, and Pritchett flopped a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. Miller won the pot with his pocket aces to double up in chips.

John Miller  –  2,525,000  (20 bb)
