Tony Abid

Scott Livingston limped from middle position for 300,000, and Tony Abid (who started today with just five big blinds) moved all in from the big blind for 1,325,000.

Livingston called with KsJd, and Abid turned over AcKc. Abid needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came Ah8d5h4h7d, and Abid won the pot with a flopped pair of aces to double up in chips.

Tony Abid  –  3,100,000  (10 bb)
Scott Livingston  –  5,650,000  (19 bb)
