Greg Merson had the button, and raised to four million. Jesse Sylvia called.

The flop was {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{6-Spades}, Sylvie checked, and Merson continued for 4.5 million. Sylvia called.

The {7-Diamonds} turned, Sylvia checked again, and Merson fired a second bullet worth eight million. Sylvia again called.

The {k-Spades} completed the board, and Sylvia checked a third time. Merson quickly checked behind.

Sylvia showed {j-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for a pair of jacks, but Merson had him beat with {q-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} for a pair of queens.
