Dominik Nitsche raised to 125,000, and Jonathan Hilton fairly quickly reraised to 275,000. Nitsche only waited a few seconds before saying he was all in, and Hilton called right away.

Nitsche: {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}
Hilton: {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

The flop was good for Hilton, coming {K-Hearts}{2-Spades}{K-Clubs}. The {7-Clubs} turn and {9-Hearts} were even better, ensuring him a double-up and survival.
