Andras Nemeth pushed into a table of shorter stacks and was called by Byron Kaverman, who was at risk for exactly 250,000 out of the big blind.
As they waited for the other table to complete the action, Nemeth jokingly asked "how much do you have, by the way." Kaverman replied with the exact amount and they then proceeded with the showdown.
The flop was not without some sweat but both the turn and river kept Kaverman in contention.
During the same hand on the other table, Daniel Dvoress had opened to 40,000 and then instantly called the shove by Sergi Reixach for what appeared to be around 500,000.
While the appeared in the window, it was followed by to leave Reixach on the brink of elimination. His exit was confirmed with the turn to render the river a formality and let the bubble burst.
"That was me this time," Dvoress joked to Sam Grafton.
