Jerry Wong limped from the cutoff for 25,000, Dan Colpoys completed the small blind, and Caleb Piderit checked his option in the big blind.

The flop came 10h9h2c, Colpoys checked, and Piderit bet 35,000. Wong raised to 100,000, Colpoys folded, and Piderit moved all in for 395,000.

Wong called with QhJh for an open-ended straight-flush draw with two overcards, and Piderit turned over 10c7c for a pair of tens. Piderit needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the Ac, the river card was the 9d, and Piderit won the pot with two pair, tens and nines, to double up in chips.

Caleb Piderit  –  905,000  (36 bb)
