Christie Yau raised from the button to 3,000,000, and John Stevenson tanked for a while before he moved all in from the small blind for 4,000,000.

Yau called with QsQh, and Stevenson turned over Ad7h. Stevenson needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came AhKd3h8sJs, and Stevenson paired his ace on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.

John Stevenson  –  8,800,000  (22 bb)
Christie Yau  –  17,000,000  (43 bb)
