Veljko Lakusic raised under the gun to 400,000, Juan Maceiras moved all in from the cutoff for about 12.7 million, and Lakusic tanked for a while before he called all in for about 2,650,000 with JhJd.

Maceiras turned over AhKd, and Lakusic needed his jacks to hold to stay alive.

The board came Ac4s2dQs9h, and Maceiras paired his ace on the flop to win the pot and eliminate Lakusic in 19th place.
