Liran Twito raised to 600,000 from the hijack and Basil Yaiche shoved from the cutoff. Ludovic Geilich asked for a count from the button and the dealer confirmed Yaiche had 3,190,000 behind. Geilich made the call. Daniel Braude quickly folded his small blind but Anton Morgenstern looked to have a lot more difficulty in making a decision from the big blind. After about two minutes, Morgenstern reluctantly folded as did Twito.
The flop came and Morgenstern held his head in his hands.
The turn was the while the rest of the table wondered what Morgenstern had.
The river completed the board with the for Yaiche to river a set of eights to stay alive.
"I had ace-king of spades'" Morgenstern said.
