After about 10 minutes of heads-up play, Ryan Jones got it all in from the button for 335,000 with AcQc, and he needed his hand to hold to stay alive against Justin Zaki’s Kh10c.

The board came 8d7h4c2h8c, and Jones won the pot with his ace to double up in chips.

Ryan Jones  –  690,000  (35 bb)
Justin Zaki  –  1,710,000  (86 bb)

About five minutes later, Jones got it all in again, this time with 2h2c, but he was dominated by Zaki’s 6s6h.

The board came 8s8h7d3cAd, and the pocket sixes held up for Zaki to win the pot — and the tournament — with two pair, eights and sixes.

Stay tuned for a recap, which will be posted later tonight.
