Michael Gathy was the first to act and made it 80,000. The button folded and Jamie Armstrong three-bet to 205,000 from the small blind. The big blind then folded and action was back on Gathy who made the call.
After a flop was exposed Armstrong continued for 225,000. Gathy eventually made the call and both players were treated to the on turn. Armstrong started the action out by checking, while Gathy took his time counting out his own stack before eventually knuckling for a check as well.
A on the river brought a repeat of action with both players checking. Armstrong flipped over for ace high, while Gathy countered with for a pair of nines and the winning hand.
