Niklas Astedt was down to just 10,000 chips and saw a flop from under the gun against the button and the big blind.
The button bet 300 on the flop and the big blind called. Astedt then check-shoved and only the big blind called.
Astedt's ladies were ahead of the pair of eights of his opponent and the Swedish pro held as the board ran out .
"Almost got rid of me," Astedt laughed.
