Padraig Parkinson Survives with A-A

Padraig Parkinson, playing on Day 1D of the Main Event
Todd Brunson raised to 3,000 pre-flop, Padraig Parkinson moved all in for 8,500 and Brunson called. Brunson's Q-Q was well behind Parkinson's A-A. The flop was {7-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, the turn was the {K-Clubs}, the river was the {K-Hearts}, and Parkinson's aces held up.

After winning the pot, Parkinson slapped himself in the face, as though he couldn't believe he survived all of the pain on the turn and the river. His stack is up to 18,000 while Brunson is down to 26,000.
