Kate Hoang made it 150,000 on the button, and Josh Arieh defended his big blind.

Arieh led out for 275,000 on the {9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} flop. Hoang thought for a while and potted it for about one million. Arieh counted out his stack. He'd have about 650,000 if he folded. He pushed them all in.

Arieh: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{q-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Hoang: {a-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}

Arieh was in rough shape against two pair with one live over that would only get him a chop. The {2-Diamonds} turn missed him, but the {q-Diamonds} river gave him a winning set.

"No gamble, no future," Arieh said as he counted out his stack. He added that he did not want to leave himself with 10 blinds and figured if he won, he was scooping the whole thing, in any case.
