NicholasBaltz • Level 34: 200,000-400,000, 400,000 ante
Michael Shanahan

Michael Shanahan raised to 1,000,000 and Scott Ball three-bet to 2,500,000.

Shanahan called and they saw the {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{7-Spades} flop. Shanahan check-called a bet of 2,200,000 and the turn was the {3-Diamonds}.

Shanahan led this time for 5,200,000 and Ball called. On the river {2-Spades} Shanahan bet 8,500,000 and Ball tanked.

After counting out his stack, Ball folded.

"I folded a very very very good hand," said Ball.

Shanahan showed the table {q-Spades}{10-Spades} for a stone-cold bluff and extended his chip lead. Ball told Shanahan that he folded {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}.
