Jerry Odeen raised under-the-gun to 125,000, David "ODB" Baker was next to act and three-bet to 300,000. Eddie Blumenthal moved all-in from the small blind for 980,000 which prompted a fast muck from Odeen, while Baker went into the tank for a while before eventually calling saying, "I hope you have ace-king."

Eddie Blumenthal: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
David "ODB" Baker: {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}

It was a coinflip and the flop smashed both players when it came {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{8-Hearts} giving Baker a set of eights while Blumenthal flopped top two pair. The turn, however, was the {a-Spades} giving Blumenthal aces full of queens and the river was the {q-Diamonds}, giving Blumenthal a double up and taking half of Baker's chips.
