Dan Shak woke up with {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts} on the button, and raised to 300,000. Fabian Quoss moved all in for 1.51 million from the small blind with {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}, and Vanessa Selbst looked down at {a-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} and asked for a count. The dealer confirmed the count from EPT Live's telecast, and Selbst went into the tank. She eventually folded, and Shak snap-called.

"Classic," Quoss sighed. "Queen-nine-three all diamonds."

Quoss' prediction fell flat, but the {7-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{10-Clubs} flop gave Quoss a pair of jacks.

"Queen of something?" Quoss asked.

The turn was indeed a "queen of something" - the {q-Hearts} - and Quoss now had an open-ended straight draw. The {9-Clubs} spiked on the river, giving Quoss said straight, and he cracked Shak's aces to double to over three million chips.

Shak left the stage to return to the restroom, and the crew decided to take a 15-minute break.
