Yuri Dzivielevski limped in with the {q-Spades}{3-Spades} and then called a raise to 800,000 by Dan Cates, who had the {a-Spades}{9-Spades}. Both checked the {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{4-Hearts} flop and the {k-Spades} turn as they then headed to the {8-Clubs} river. Cates checked once more and Dzivielevski bet 1,000,000 into 1,900,000.

Cates contemplated the next hero-call in a row while out of his chair and did so as the Brazilian rail once more had reason to celebrate.
