Brett Shaffer raised to 55,000 from the button before Ryan Hughes re-raised to 200,000 from the small blind. Shaffer put in another raise to 549,000 and Hughes called.

Hughes shoved the {k-Clubs}{10-Spades}{6-Spades} flop and Shaffer called all in for his last 545,000. Hughes turned over {10-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds} for two pair, kings and tens, while Shaffer had {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}{a-Hearts}{j-Clubs} for a pair of aces.

Shaffer was in danger of having his pocket aces cracked, but the {a-Spades} came on the turn to give him a set and the double up.
