In the first hand after the break, Marton Czuczor raised to 900,000 from the button with {6-Spades}{3-Spades} and Simon Brandstrom called with {k-Clubs}{3-Hearts}.

The flop came {k-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} for Czuczor to hit trips but for Brandstrom to hit the full house. Brandstrom checked and Czuczor continued with a bet of 700,000. Brandstrom took a few seconds and then made the call.

The turn was the {6-Diamonds} for Czuczor to hit a full house too but the lower one. Brandstrom checked again. Czuczor fired another bet over the line, this time one of 1,700,000. Brandstrom stared at the board and then decided to make the call.

The river completed the board with the {10-Hearts} to not change things. Brandstrom checked for the last time and now Czuczor bet 6,000,000. Brandstrom shoved for 17,925,000 after using a time bank card. Czuczor looked at his cards once more before making the snap-call but then saw the bad news to leave himself behind with just under 17 million.
