According to Blake Whittington, Micah Smith opened from early position with a raise to 23,000 and Whittington flatted. Edward Sageer flatted behind bringing players three-ways to a flop.

The flop came down {Q-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and Smith checked. Whittington put out a bet of 28,000 and Sageer moved all in for a bit over 150,000. Smith flatted and Whittington flatted as well.

The turn was the {6-Hearts} and Smith decided to lead out, cutting out a bet of 175,000. Whittington thought for a long while before putting in the call.

On the {2-Spades} river, Smith moved all in with a covering stack on Whittington for about 250,000 effective. Whittington snap-called. Whittington revealed his {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs} for a rivered full house. Smith was holding {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for the flopped nut flush. So that meant Whittington earned a full double.

Sageer moved his purple monkey card protector, who he called Grapes, and revealed his {J-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for a flopped flush as well. That meant Whittington collected the main pot as well as double up to over one million chips.
