Eric Siegel raised under the gun to 65,000, and Brandon Navarrete called from the big blind.

The flop came Jc10h2h, Navarrete checked, Siegel bet 200,000, and Navarrete tanked for a while before he check-raised all in for 285,000.

Siegel quickly called with AdQh for ace high with a gutshot straight draw, and Navarrete turned over Kc10c for a pair of tens. Navarrete needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the 3c, giving Navarrete additional protection with a club flush draw, and the river card was the 8d. Navarrete won the pot with his pair of tens to double up in chips.

Brandon Navarrete  –  740,000  (30 bb)
