After a flop of 9d5h3h with 2.1 million already in the pot, Juan Endara checked, Daniel Le bet 525,000, and Endara thought for a while before he check-raised to 1,500,000.

Le took a moment or two to think before moving all in, and Endara stood up and took a deep breath before he said, “I call.”

Le said, “I have a five,” as he showed 5d4s for a pair of fives, and Endara turned over 10s9c for a pair of nines. Endara needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the 8s, the river card was the 7c, and Endara won the pot with his pair of nines to double up into the chip lead.

Juan Endara  –  13,650,000  (34 bb)
Daniel Le  –  5,050,000  (13 bb)
