Thomas Kornechuk raised from the cutoff to 35,000, Steven Bennett reraised from the button to 105,000, and Kornechuk tanked for a long time before he called.

The flop came Qs10d2s, Kornechuk moved all in for 212,000, and Bennett called all in for 201,000 with AsAh.

Kornechuk turned over KcQh, and Bennett needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the 5h, the river card was the 3d, and the aces held up for Bennett to win the pot and double up in chips. Kornechuk was knocked down to a single big blind.

Steven Bennett  –  637,000  (64 bb)
Thomas Kornechuk  –  11,000  (1 bb)
