On a board reading {10-Spades}{7-Spades}{7-Hearts}{8-Hearts}, with about 350,000 in the middle already, Michael Vela led out for 175,000 from the small blind.

Nick Maimone was on the button and called.

The river was the {9-Clubs}. Vela wasted no time and led out for 275,000 this time. Maimone went into the tank, eventually apologizing to the table for taking time to make the decision. Eventually, Maimone called.

Vela tabled {j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} for a straight while Maimone tabled {a-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} for trip sevens, sending the pot Vela's way.
