Witte check-called a bet of 115,000 after the came on the flop and check-called for 300,000 after the came on the turn.
Witte checked after the completed the board on the river and Siljander jammed for about 900,000. Witte tanked for a minute before he made the call.
Siljander turned over for a missed open-ended straight draw and was eliminated in 11th place after Witte turned over for top pair.
