After a raise to 75,000, Jeraint Hazan moved all in for 709,000 from the cutoff and Matas Cimbolas moved all in over the top to scare off the initial preflop aggressor. Hazan turned over the {J-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds} and Cimbolas had two over cards with {A-Clubs} {K-Spades}. The {2-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds} {K-Diamonds} flop provided plenty of fireworks for both players and Hazan locked up the huge double with the {9-Spades} on the turn. The {2-Hearts} river didn't matter anymore, vaulting Hazan out of his chair.

"A million for JJ" he yelled, letting the whole poker room know.
