Anthony Maio opened to 175,000 from the cutoff and Anthony Giliberti three-bet jammed from the button for around 3,000,000. Maio quickly called with a slightly larger stack when the action got around.

Anthony Giliberti: {q-Spades}{5-Spades}
Anthony Maio: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}

Giliberti was startled as Maio announced "call" to his right and told the table he didn't realize there had been a raise and instead thought he was open-ripping into the short-stacked blinds. Instead, he found himself at risk of busting a more than 37 big blind stack with far less than a premium.

The flop landed {8-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Clubs} to give him some hope with a pair, but nonetheless, the board ran out {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and others at the table sat gasping after witnessing the accidental implosion.
