Johnny Pham moved all in from the small blind for 900,000, and Marlo McCloskey called from the big blind with 7h7d.

Pham turned over Ac4s, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Ad10s6c8hKc — Pham paired his ace on the flop, McCloskey picked up a gutshot straight draw on the turn, and the river card was a blank. Pham won the pot with a pair of aces to double up in chips.

Johnny Pham  –  2,000,000  (10 bb)
Marlo McCloskey  –  850,000  (4 bb)
