Action folded to Phil Laak on the button and he potted to 52,000, which Bryce Yockey called from the big blind. It was heads up to the {6-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts} flop, which saw Yockey check-call a bet of 48,000. When the {9-Clubs} was put out on the turn, Yockey check-called another bet, this time 174,000.

The {A-Spades} completed the board and Yockey checked one last time. Laak thought for a few moments before sliding in the remainder of his stack . . . 527,000! Yockey snap-called only to muck when Laak rolled over {2-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} for trip threes with the nut low.

With that, Laak takes a commanding chip lead while Yockey was reduced to just 328,000.
