In a pot of 1,400,000 in the middle on a board of {k-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}, Raul Esquivel checked from the small blind and Nolan King bet pot. Esquivel moved all in for 1,850,000 total and King made the call.

Raul Esquivel: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{2-Clubs}
Nolan King: {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}

King flopped a set but was out drawn on the jack turn, giving Esquivel the nut-straight. King needed the board to pair to eliminate his opponent. The {4-Diamonds} rolled off on the river and the straight of Esquivel held for the huge double up.
