Dario Sammartino limped the button, Sean Winter did the same from the small blind, and Nick Maimone checked his option from the big to bring about an flop. Winter led out for 135,000, Maimone folded, and Sammartino called to see the turn.
Winter bet again, this time 445,000, and Sammartino came along to the river. Winter slid out a bet of 1.8 million, which put Sammartino, who had 1.56 million behind, to the test. The Italian tanked for a couple of minutes but eventually released his hand.
