John Racener

Nate Silver raised in the cutoff and got calls in the small blind from John Racener, and the big blind from John Monette.

The trio saw a flop of {4-Spades}{2-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}, which Racener and Monette checked. Silver bet, and Racener put in a raise. Monnette folded.

On the {3-Spades} turn, Racener bet and Silver called.

Silver then also called a bet on the {5-Hearts} river.

Racener showed {a-Spades}{10-Spades} for a rivered wheel.

With the win, Racener is on the verge of being the first player to cross one million in chips.
