Champ: Jia Alive

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH

Blinds 30k/60k, 5k ante

Jia Liu limps from the SB
Russ Dykshteyn raises to 175k
Liu moves all in for 1.5 million
Dykshteyn calls

Dykshteyn: 8♣ 8
Liu: 7♠ 7

The door card is the 7♣ and a set of 7s gives Liu the double-up.

Liu is now at 3 million, while Dykshteyn drops to 10.8 million.

Before the hand Liu jokingly asks Dykshteyn what he'll do if he doesn't win the tournament.

"I won't kill myself," Dykshteyn quips, "but I'll stop playing poker for a long time. At least a couple of weeks."
