Michael Graffeo moved all in from the small blind for 1,615,000, and Carlos Chadha Villamarin tanked for a fairly long time before he called with 2s2h.

Graffeo turned over 3h3d, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

Villamarin laughed and said, “I almost folded it.”

The board came Kh10c4h9d6d, and the pocket threes hold up for Graffeo to win the pot and double up in chips.

Michael Graffeo  –  3,330,000  (33 bb)
Carlos Chadha Villamarin  –  3,570,000  (36 bb)
