Adrian Piasecki opened for 150,000 under the gun with {8-Spades}{8-Clubs} and was met with a three-bet to 340,000 by Jason Lavallee, who held {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts} in middle position. Action folded back around to Piasecki, he moved all in for 1,725,000, and Lavallee made the call.

Piasecki was knocking on elimination's door, and the {4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Spades} flop didn't provide him much help. He needed either an eight or running straight cards to extend his tournament life, and while he wouldn't find an eight, the {A-Hearts} turn and {5-Hearts} river did complete the improbable straight. Chop it up.
