Kevin McCormick

A player raised from middle position to 20,000, Kevin McCormick moved all in from the cutoff for 175,000, and his opponent tanked for a long time before he called with 6s6d.

McCormick turned over AsQd, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came QhJh3c9sKs, and McCormick paired his queen on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.
