Justin Trant got it all in from the hijack for 118,000 with QsQh, and he needed his hand to hold to stay alive against the AhKc of his opponent in middle position.

The flop came KdJc9h, giving his opponent top pair to Trant’s gutshot straight draw.

The turn card was the 6c, and the river card was the Qd, giving Trant a rivered set of queens to win the pot and double up in chips.
