Abdelouahed Bouanani moved all in from the small blind for 1,650,000, and Robert Cheung tanked for a while before he called from the big blind with Ah7d. Bouanani turned over 2h2c, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came 10c9h8s5cKh — Cheung flopped an open-ended straight draw to go with his overcards, but missed all of his outs. The pocket deuces held up for Bouanani to win the pot and double up in chips.

Abdelouahed Bouanani  –  3,425,000  (27 bb)
