A raise to 500 was called by Jaime Staples and Gary Thompson three-bet to 2,500, which only Staples called. The flop brought and Staples checked to Thompson, who made it 2,100 to go. Staples check-raised to 9,000 and the Canadian was called. On the turn, Staples fired a bet of 12,000 and that was enough to claim the pot without further resistance.
Staples peeked at his cards and flashed the for top set.
