After a flop of Jc3s2h with 4,100,000 already in the pot, Steve Karp got it all in from the big blind for 7,200,000 with AsAd, and needed it to hold to stay alive against the AcJs (pair of jacks) of Johnathan Norris in the hijack.

The turn card was the 3c, the river card was the 8c, and the aces held up for Karp to win the pot and double up in chips.

Steve Karp  –  18,500,000  (93 bb)
Johnathan Norris  –  29,000,000  (145 bb)
