Benjamin Pollak

Benjamin Pollak had reentered just before the start of Day 2 and was sitting with a fresh stack of 1,000,000 which he decided to shove from the hijack. Ole Schemion also shoved but with the bigger stack of over 2 million from the small blind. Shan Huang asked for a count but while the dealer was counting, Huang already announced he was folding his pair of aces.

"Show it!' the table said and Huang showed {a-Hearts}.

Benjamin Pollak: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Ole Schemion: {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}

Huang claimed to have folded ace-ten.

The board ran out {10-Spades}{4-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} for Huang to exclaim he would have won but instead it was Pollak who would double up through Schemion.
