Ari Engel raised to 625,000 from the cutoff (leaving 235,000 behind), and Michael Yehudai reraised all in from the button for about 2,300,000.

After the blinds folded Yehudai exposed KhKs, thinking that Engel was all in. Engel was not, however, and went into the tank.

“I know I’m beat,” said Engel, getting laughs from the table.

After about three minutes, Yehudai called the clock and Engel stuck his remaining chips in.

“Hope nobody folded a six,” said Engel, as he showed 6s6d.

“How do you call there?” asked Yehudai.

As the dealer started to spread the flop, tablemate Steven McKoy started laughing hysterically when he saw the window card was the 6h, and the flop followed 9s7c6h to give Engel a set of sixes to pull ahead.

The 2s turn and 2h river completed the board, giving Engel sixes full of deuces to double up.

Ari Engel  –  1,870,000  (31 bb)
Michael Yehudai  –  1,670,000  (28 bb)
