Well, that escalated quickly.

The hand began innocently enough when action folded to Macau's Raiden Kan in the small blind and he raised to 90,000. Lennart Uphoff defended from the big blind, and then both players checked the {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{10-Clubs} flop as well as the {2-Diamonds} turn.

When the {K-Hearts} completed the board on the river, Kan checked and Uphoff bet a modest 65,000. That is when Kan woke up with a check-raise in a big way. He moved all in for roughly 1.2 million, which elicited a quick call from Uphoff.

Kan knew immediately he picked a bad spot to shove with his {q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}, and indeed he did as Uphoff had rivered a flush with the {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}. Just like that, the start-of-the-day chip lead hit the rail in 10th place.
