At the feature table, Darren Elias raised to 10,000 from the cutoff. Chan Pelton called from the button. Everyone else folded.

The flop came {3-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}. Pelton bet 11,000 and Elias check-raised to 35,000. Pelton called.

The turn came the {6-Clubs}. Elias made a bet of 80,000 and Pelton called to build the pot.

The river was the {k-Diamonds}. Elias jammed all in for 286,000 and Pelton snap called.

Elias showed the {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} for a set which beat the {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} two-pair of Pelton to create a seismic shift in chips.
