With the board showing Qd9h8cKc on the turn, it appeared that Christina Gollins checked, Johnny Bromberg bet, Gollins moved all in, and Bromberg snap-called with Jh10h for a king-high straight.

Gollins turned over QsQh for a set of queens, and Bromberg needed to avoid a pair on the board to stay alive.

The river card was the 10d, and Bromberg won the pot with his ace-high straight to double up in chips and take the chip lead.

Johnny Bromberg  –  15,650,000  (104 bb)
Christina Gollins  –  10,200,000  (68 bb)
