Tomas Paiva limped in from the button with {k-Clubs}{8-Spades} and Norbert Szecsi completed his small blind with {j-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. Gaby Livshitz opted to check in the big blind.

They all checked through the {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} flop to the {j-Hearts} on the turn. Szecsi checked his improved two pair, Livshitz bet 225,000 with the gutshot to a straight. Paiva raised to 875,000 with trip eights. Szecsi three-bet to 2,125,000 after using a time bank card. Livshitz got out of the way. Paiva used a time bank card too and made the call.

The river completed the board with the {a-Clubs}, Paiva looked over to Szecsi who used a time bank card before deciding to shove, having Paiva covered as he had 3,810,000 behind. Paiva used a time bank card of his one before making the fold. Szecsi showed his cards. Paiva got up from his chair immediately, returned to his seat a few seconds later, and knocked on the table .
