Henri Puustinen raised to 30,000 from the button and Jason Koon made the call.

The flop came {8-Spades}{6-Spades}{6-Clubs}, Koon check-called the 20,000 continuation-bet of Puustinen.

The turn was the {2-Clubs} and Koon checked again. This time, Puustinen decided to bet 75,000 and Koon called again.

The river completed the board with the {q-Clubs} and Koon checked for the last time. Puustinen took his time and then bet 375,000. Koon glanced at his cards again before making the call. Puustinen first showed the {k-Diamonds} and then the {6-Diamonds} for trips but Koon held the {9-Clubs}{4-Clubs} for the flush and the first pot of the heads-up match.
