The turn was the {6-Spades} and both players checked to see the {7-Spades} land on the river. Heinz checked and Staszko bet 5.25 million. After a minute, Heinz called.

Staszko showed the {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} and Heinz mucked.

Hand #290: Playing the Board

• Level 42: 1,000,000-2,000,000, 300,000 ante

Pius Heinz raised to 4.2 million from the button, and Martin Staszko called to see the flop.

It came {7-Spades} {9-Spades} {5-Hearts}, and the Czech led out into the pot with 5 million of his own chips. Heinz was the one doing the calling now, and the turn brought them the {8-Diamonds}. Staszko checked now, and Heinz checked it back to see the {6-Hearts} on the river. Check-check again.

Neither player could beat the board, and they chopped it up. We only caught a quick glimpse of the cards, but it looked like Staszko had flopped two pair with {7-Hearts} {9-Hearts}, and Heinz appeared to have {8-Diamonds} {4-Hearts} or {8-Hearts} {4-Diamonds}.

Hand #288: Heinz Shoves In

• Level 42: 1,000,000-2,000,000, 300,000 ante

Pius Heinz opened to 4 million on the button, and Martin Staszko defended his big blind. The flop came {5-Hearts} {4-Hearts} {J-Diamonds}, and Heinz put another 4.5 million chips out there. Staszko check-raised to 10.2 million, though, and Heinz sat studying for about a minute. Then came the hammer -- all in for 54.3 million on a three-bet shove. Staszko has a habit of looking backward over his left shoulder when he's facing a big decision, and he spent some time doing just that before surrendering.

Heinz takes his fifth pot in a row, rebounding back up to 73.1 million.
