After three hands in a row in which preflop raises claimed the blinds and antes — two by Jeremy Ausmus, one by Russell Thomas — Thomas was raising again to 450,000 from early position and getting a caller this time in Jacob Balsiger in the big blind.

The flop came {Q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}. Balsiger checked, Thomas bet 500,000, and Balsiger called. The turn then brought the {10-Spades} and checks from both players.

The river was the {9-Diamonds}. Balsiger checked once more, and this time Thomas fired 1.3 million. Balsiger thought a full minute, then looked back at his cards and pushed them away.
