Chip leader Jon Lane raised to 32,000 from early position, and David Stephens three-bet to 84,000 from late position. Action folded back to Lane, who called. The dealer fanned a {Q-Spades}{7-Clubs}{10-Hearts} flop and Lane check-called a bet worth 104,000. On the {7-Spades} turn, Lane became the aggressor by leading out for 105,000. Stephens responded by raising to 280,000, and Lane called after a minute of thought.

With nearly a million chips now in the pot, the {8-Hearts} fell on the river. Lane checked, and Stephens stared at the board for about two minutes before deciding to check behind. Lane flipped over {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} for queens and sevens, and Stephens showed {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}.

"Couldn't get you off that if I jammed the river, could I?" Stephens asked Lane. The chip leader shook his head with a sly grin on his face, and began adding chips to his tower.
