Michael McKenna raised to 260,000 and Phil Galfond called.

Both players checked the {q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop. Galfond checked the {8-Clubs} turn and McKenna bet 300,000. Galfond check-raised to 1,200,000 and McKenna called.

The river was the {5-Clubs}. Galfond bet pot for 2,920,000 and McKenna called.

"I have ace-deuce and a straight," said Galfond, showing {a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{2-Spades}.

"How big is your straight?" said McKenna, peering down towards the end of the table. "F*ck," he said before counting out the chips for his opponent.
