John Hewitt opened for 130,000 in middle position and action folded around to Kenny Shih in the big blind. Shih moved all in for 1.51 million and Hewitt, having Shih covered, called without hesitating.

Shih: {A-Spades} {A-Hearts}
Hewitt: {J-Hearts} {J-Diamonds}

The flop came out {10-Clubs} {9-Hearts} {Q-Spades} giving Hewitt an up and down straight draw. "I like the sweat," Hewitt said.

Shih was pleading for his hand to hold, calling for a deuce or a three. The turn came {3-Hearts} helping Shih's cause. With one card to come and with ten outs against him Shih was standing.

The river came {7-Clubs} and Shih's aces held, doubling him up to over 3.3 million and Hewitt slipped to just over a million.
