The flop read and the small blinded player bet out 6,000. A player in middle position folded and former Main Event champion Pius Heinz called from the hijack.
The then landed on the turn and the small blind again bet out, this time for 12,000. Heinz called again and continued along for the ride. The on the river saw the small blind bet out again for the third time. The bet was for 15,000 and action was on Heinz, after about a minute or so Heinz grabbed a stack of chips and pushed forward a raise. Heinz made it 34,000, and after about 45 seconds the small blind called.
Heinz flipped over for two pair, queens and jacks. The small blind countered by exposing for a winning set of sevens. Heinz asked his opponent after the hand "were you thinking about folding", and his opponent shook his head and made it apparent he was going to raise if anything.
Heinz now sinks down to around 44,000 and needs to kick it in gear if he wants to move back into contention.
