Yordan Petrov moved all in from the button, and Brock Wilson called all in from the big blind for 180,000 with QhQd. Petrov turned over Ks7d, and Wilson needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came Ac8h6c3c5c, and the pocket queens held up for Wilson to win the pot and double up in chips.

Seat 1.  Brock Wilson  –  420,000  (11 bb)
Seat 2.  Yordan Petrov  –  2,265,000  (57 bb)

Two hands later, Brock Wilson moved all in from the button for 400,000, and Yordan Petrov tanked for a while before he called from the small blind with KsJc.

Wilson turned over As7s and said, “I have a bad feeling about this.”

The board came Ac10c2dQdQc — Wilson paired his ace on the flop, but Petrov turned an ace-high straight to win the pot and eliminate Wilson in third place.
