The flop came {5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}, Delaine continued with a bet of 3,125,000 and Muehloecker went along.

The turn was the {7-Clubs} and Delaine fired 12,337,500 over the line for Muehloecker to call.

The river completed the board with the {8-Spades} and Delaine decided to put Muehloecker all-in who tanked and then called for the 22,754,940 he had behind with the {a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for two pair. Delaine held the {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs} for the higher two pair and the win.
