Gerald Cunniff

Gerald Cunniff raised to 400,000 on the button and was called by Ron Kohner in the big blind.

On the {j-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Clubs} flop, after Kohner checked, Cunniff bet 500,000 and was met with a quick check-raise all in from Kohner for about 3,000,000. Cunniff called in great shape, but still with his tournament life at risk.

Gerald Cunniff: {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Ron Kohner: {6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}

Cunniff's top pair would hold, as the dealer laid down the {10-Hearts} on the turn and the {k-Diamonds} on the river to give Cunniff a huge double-up into the chip lead.
