Catching the action on the turn with the board reading {3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Hearts}, a healthy pot was brewing between Thomas Popov and Taylor von Kriegenbergh.

Popov had bet 58,000 — effectively all in since he left just a 1,000-denomination chip to cap his cards — and von Kriegenbergh was deep into the tank. Several minutes went by before von Kriegenbergh pushed out a stack of orange 5,000-denomination chips and Popov tossed in his last chip to call all in.

Popov: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}
Von Kriegenbergh: {A-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}

With Popov in the lead with his overpair and needing to fade a five, four, or ace, the dealer would smack the {A-Hearts} on the river to send Popov off to the rail in a hurry as von Kriegenbergh was pushed the pot to send him to over 300,000.

As von Kriegenbergh began raking in the pot, he discussed the hand a little with the players around him before concluding, "play bad and win is my strategy!"
