Joshua Hillock
Joshua Hillock

From the cutoff, Joshua Hillock moved all in for 3,785,000, and with the action on Zachary Gruneberg in the small blind, he pushed all in.

Hillock: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Gruneberg: {A-Hearts}{10-Spades}

With Hillock racing for his tournament life, the {A-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} flop would give Gruneberg the lead as the {5-Clubs} landed on the turn.

"A diamond perhaps?" asked Hillock.

The dealer wouldn't deliver a diamond, but the {9-Hearts} instead to give Hillock a set of nines and the double to to 8 million as Gruneberg slip to 21.2 million in chips.

Sinishtaj: {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}
Drake: {6-Clubs}{6-Spades}
