Nick Palma was all in from the small blind for 250,000 with Jh9s, and he needed to improve to stay alive against the As5c of Don Flynn in the big blind.

The board came 10s9c8s10c4c — Palma flopped a pair of nines with an open-ended straight draw, and it held up for him to win the pot and double up in chips.

Nick Palma  –  540,000  (14 bb)
