Ilian Li raised to 280,000 from middle position and Seth Zimmerman called from the big blind. He bet in the dark to put Li to a decision for the remainder of his chips before the dealer fanned out the flop. Li, who only had 335,000 to start the hand, called to put himself at risk.
While Zimmerman's hand had been best preflop, Li had taken the lead with flopped two pair. The turn put Zimmerman back out in front, but the river meant Li would take the pot with a nine-high straight to double up.
