The action started with a raise to 4,800 by Zvi Stern and the November Niner found three callers in Keith Johnson, David Dayan and Quan Zhou. In the small blind, Marko Neumann moved all in for 34,700 and Stern flat-called only to see Johnson then move in as well for around 65,000. Stern called and put the two short stacks at risk once Dayan and Zhou had folded.
"Oh, that's slightly difficult, diamonds please," Neumann said. Instead, the flop came and Johnson stood up from his chair ready to leave. Neither the turn nor the river changed anything and Stern soared up to more than half a million.
