After a flop of 9h8h5d, Amir Baron checked, Buck Bucceri bet 100,000, and Baron check-raised to about 325,000.

Bucceri moved all in, and Baron called all in for 1,365,000 with 8s7d for a pair of eights with a gutshot straight draw.

Bucceri turned over 9s6c for a pair of nines with a different gutshot straight draw, and Baron needed to improve to stay alive.
