Early position, Tony Chiarlanza raised pre-flop to 20k, he got one caller mid position, and action folded around to Herbert Kern Jr who moved all in on the blinds for about 600k.  Chiarlanza tanked briefly, barely having Kern covered, then made the call.

Kern: AKo

Chiarlanza: KK

Board ran out missing Kern, for Chiarlanza to hold up to win a huge pot and get nearly double up to push him well over the million mark in chips.
