Level 22 (12000/24000/4000)
Entrants: 423
Players remaining: 8
Average chips: 1,057,500

Charles Aron opens the pot for 55,000 and it folds to Seth Evans who three-bets to 175,000.  Jesse Jones, next to act, four-bets to 500,000. The action folds back to Aron who moves all in for 758,000. Evans folds and Jones calls.

Charles Aron - K♥K♣
Jesse Jones - A♦Q♦

The flop comes J♥J♠T♥, bringing no help to Jones since a king for the straight would give Aron a full house. The turn is the 7♥, stealing the A♥ away from Jones as an out, as that would give Aron the winning flush. Only a non-heart ace on the river will knock out Aron. The river is the 8♣ and Aron survives to more than double up.

Charles Aron - 1,737,000
Jesse Jones - 690,000
