• Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

In a battle of the blinds, the dealer fanned the flop of {q-Clubs}{3-Spades}{3-Clubs} and Chance Kornuth led out for 5,000 from the small blind. His opponent raised to 16,000 from the big blind and Kornuth called.

The turn brought the {2-Hearts} and both players checked to the {q-Hearts} on the river. Kornuth splashed in a bet of 25,000 and the two players began a staring contest. The big blind eventually dispatched his cards and Kornuth pulled in the pot.
