The turn brought the {A-Spades} and Riley bet again, 85,000 this time. McDermott went into the tank for several minutes before he raised to 433,000. Riley jammed and McDermott quickly called to put himself at risk.

Phil Riley: {K-Spades}{J-Spades}{J-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}
Tim McDermott: {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{7-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

Riley had flopped a set of jacks and plus straight and flush draws but found himself trailing McDermott's set of aces. The {K-Hearts} river was no help to Riley and McDermott took the pot to double up.
