The turn was the {K-Spades} and Bensimhon checked. Lybaert cut out a bet of 190,000 and Bensimhon called, creating a pot of over 700,000 already.

The river was the {6-Hearts} and Bensimhon checked. Lybaert gave it a brief thought before checking behind.

Bensimhon showed {9-Spades}{9-Hearts} for nines and treys, and Lybaert mucked his hand.
