In the very last hand of the previous level, Adrian Mateos raised to 4,500 and Zvi Stern min-clicked to 7,900 from one seat over. The action folded to Quan Zhou in the big blind and he four-bet to 26,500. Mateos quickly folded, Stern asked for the stack size of his opponent and eventually folded.
Zhou showed and Stern grinned back. The November Niner is up to 400,000 chips and Enrico Coppola has about as much one table over. The Italian called a bet worth 5,200 by Javier Zarco on the turn before check-folding the river to another bet of 12,500.
