Brock Wilson got it all in from the button for 150,000 with Ad8h, and he needed his hand to hold to stay alive against the Ac6s of Ian O’Hara in the big blind.

The board came 9s9h7h4d2d, and the board came low enough for Wilson’s eight kicker to play, giving him the double-up.

Brock Wilson  –  325,000  (22 bb)
Ian O’Hara  –  830,000  (55 bb)
