There was about 400,000 in the pot, and the board read Ac7h6h8c when Craig Varnell opened the action with a bet of 750,000. Joseph reraised all in for 3,875,000. Varnell easily had him covered and called so the two players tabled their cards.

Joseph held pocket eights, and Varnell was on multiple draws holding Jh9h. The flush and straight draws didn’t come through for Varnell when the river fell 9d, and Joseph doubled up to survive with 6,825,000. Varnell held 3.25 million after the hand.

Jeremy Joseph – 8,150,000 (65 bb)
Craig Varnell – 3,250,000 (26 bb)
