The player on the button raised to 300,000, the small blind moved all in for 1,330,000, and Sheddy Siddiqui called all in from the big blind for 865,000.

The player on the button asked for an exact count, and then tanked for a while before he folded.

Siddiqui turned over 5s5c, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against the small blind’s As8s.

The board came 10h6d4h5h2c, and Siddiqui won the pot with a set of fives to double up in chips.
