Both players checked as the {j-Hearts} completed the board on the river. Cai checked and Sammartino bet 4,000,000. Cai deliberated for several minutes before calling. Sammartino showed {q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}, but Cai collected the pot with {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}.

Hand #68: Alex Livingston raised his button to 1,400,000 and Dario Sammartino called from the big blind. The flop landed {3-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{q-Clubs} and both players checked to reveal the {9-Hearts} on the turn.

Sammartino led out for 3,000,000 and Livingston called as the {4-Clubs} completed the board on the river. Sammartino bet 6,600,000 and Livingston called.

Sammartino tabled his {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds} for a set, and Livingston folded.
