Ben Warrington raised to 300,000 on the button and Matas Cimbolas called in the big blind. The flop was {2-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{7-Clubs} and Cimbolas check-called a bet of 325,000.

The turn was the {J-Hearts} and Cimbolas checked again, Warrington bet 525,000 and Cimbolas check-raised all in for a total of 2,610,000. Warrington got a count, scratched his head then made the call.

Warrington: {Q-Clubs}{10-Spades}
Cimbolas: {J-Spades}{7-Spades}

Warrington needed a queen, ten or deuce to win but the river was the {9-Clubs}. Cimbolas has taken the chip lead for the first time in this heads-up battle.
