Sean Troha limp-called a pot-sized raise by Shiva Dudani in a battle of the blinds and check-folded the flop when facing a bet worth 700,000.
One hand later, Troha raised to 500,000 on the button and Dudani three-bet the pot to 1,750,000 in the small blind. It folded back to Troha who repotted to 5,500,000 and that sent Dudani into a brief tank as he studied the remaining stack of his previous foe.
Dudani then called and checked the flop before calling the shove by Troha for 4,500,000.
"Aces?" Dudani inquired as he rolled over his for a set of tens. Troha, however, was caught with a move as he tabled the only.
His rail shouted for a king and sure enough that's what came on the turn. Dudani now needed the case ten or a jack to avoid another major setback but Troha held up on the blank river to double into the lead.
