Garry Gates shoved all-in from the small blind for 9,200,000 and Diego Veiga called in the big blind.

Garry Gates: {k-Spades}{q-Spades}
Diego Veiga: {a-Hearts}{4-Spades}

Gates was slightly behind preflop but the {j-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Clubs} flop had Veiga almost drawing dead as he flopped a straight. The board completed with the {j-Hearts} on the turn and the {k-Diamonds} on the river, sealing Gates' double up.
