A player moved all in from middle position for 1,000,000, and Roni Zelichonok tanked for a long time before he called all in from the cutoff for 600,000 with AcQc.

His opponent turned over AhJh, and Zelichonok needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came 8s6d5s7d10c, and Zelichonok won the pot with his queen kicker to double up in chips.
