Chris Hunichen limped in for 80,000 from the button and David Peters raised to 320,000 from the big blind. Hunichen responded by shoving all in for 2,645,000 and Peters instantly called.
“Would you do the same? 30 bigs?” asked Hunichen to Peters once the cards were revealed.
Peters acknowledged with a yes.
The dealer spread the flop to give Hunichen additional counterfeit outs with a ten to go along with his ace as the landed on the turn.
Hunichen would now be looking for an ace, ten, or eight to stay alive, but when the dealer burned and turned the on the river, he would have to settle for second-place in the U.S. Poker Open $100,000 Main Event and the $858,000 payday.
