England's own Jamie Burland came in for a raise on the button, Nicolas Chouity three-bet to 29,000 from the big blind, and Burland responded with a four-bet to 66,000. Chouity tanked for a minute or so, then moved all in for effectively 300,000 or so. Burland called, and the cards were turned on their backs:
It was your standard race until the flop fell , giving both players straight draws. Chouity could still take the lead with an ace or a king on the turn, but the gave Burland a queen-high straight.
Now, only one of the two black tens remaining in the deck could eliminated Burland, and low and behold the spiked on the river. Burland shot up out of his seat in shock, then quickly composed himself, shook Chouity's hand, and wished him luck.
Chouity now sits with over 600,000 chips.
