Andras Nemeth opened the action with a raise from the cutoff, and Patrick Leonard moved all in for around 900,000 from the small blind.
The action folded back to Nemeth, and he called after a few seconds of thought.
Nemeth hit top pair on the flop to extend his preflop advantage, and improved to two pair on the turn.
"Ohh god!" said Leonard as he saw the king hit the river for a straight and the Brit survived.
Nemeth sacrificed close to a third of his stack in cruel fashion, as Leonard lived to fight on.
