All In and Call! Sowers Doubles Through Ferguson

We've finally had our first all-in bet that was called, but it didn't result in an elimination. Mike Sowers raised to 200,000 from middle position and was called by the big blind, Chris Ferguson. Ferguson checked a jack-high flop, {j-Clubs} {8-Hearts} {2-Hearts}, to Sowers, who bet 350,000. Ferguson moved all in and quickly Sowers called! The cards were quickly opened:

Ferguson: {Q-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}
Sowers: {k-Spades} {K-Diamonds}

Ferguson flopped top pair but it was in rough shape against Sowers' overpair. The turn {K-Clubs} took all the drama out of the hand; it made an unbeatable set of kings for Sowers. Ferguson paid him 1.19 million after the river fell {2-Clubs}.
