Michael Duek limped from the button for 75,000, Melad Marji raised from the big blind to 225,000, and Duek called.

The flop came QsJh3d, Duek got it all in for 525,000, and they turned over their cards.

Melad Marji:  KcJs9s5s  (pair of jacks, gutshot straight draw)
Michael Duek:  Jc8c7c7s  (pair of jacks)

Duek needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the 4s, giving Marji a spade flush draw to negate some of Duek’s outs.

The river card was — the 8d. Duek rivered two pair, jacks and eights, to win the pot and double up in chips.

Michael Duek  –  1,575,000  (21 bb)
Melad Marji  –  3,625,000  (48 bb)
