Hand #130: Byron Kaverman had the button, and raised to 325,000. Keven Stammen called, the flop fell {6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{j-Spades}, and Stammen checked. Kaverman continued for 375,000, Stammen called, and the turn brought the {2-Hearts}. Stammen opted to lead out, firing 525,000, and Kaverman tanked for two minutes.

He eventually raised to 1.25 million, and Stammen sat quietly, riffling a small stack of chips with his right hand.

"Call," he said, committing the necessary chips.

The river was a repeat four - the {4-Clubs} - and Stammen quickly checked. Kaverman checked behind, then mucked when Stammen showed {a-Clubs}{4-Hearts} for trip fours.
