Anton Morgenstern took a chip lead.
Anton Morgenstern took a chip lead.

We found two Morgensterns, Gad and Anton, heads up on the end with a pot of about 700,000 already built up. Anton fired a small bet of 150,000 with the board reading {6-Spades}{k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{3-Spades}. Gad asked for a count, then pushed all in after about a minute. Anton thought for a bit before tossing out a few orange chips to indicate a call.

Gad leaned back in his chair, stretched his arms and shook his head slightly. Anton flipped over {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} for an overpair after Gad showed {a-Spades}{7-Hearts} for ace-high.

"How do you call with that?" Gad said quietly.

He was forced to ship 1,604,000 to his like-named opponent.
