After a flop of 9c3d2s with about 675K already in the pot, Michael Mascitelli checked from the big blind, Carlo Rodriguez moved all in from the cutoff, and Mascitelli tanked for a while before he called all in for 735,000 with 10h9h for a pair of nines.

But Rodriguez turned over JsJd, and Mascitelli needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the 8s, the river card was the 10s, and Mascitelli rivered two pair to win the pot and double up in chips.

Michael Mascitelli  –  2,145,000  (43 bb)
