After Sean Troha limped in first position, Michael Duek raised to 400,000 in the hijack. Troha called to see a flop.

That flop came {k-Hearts}{5-Spades}{5-Hearts} and after Troha checked, Duek bet 200,000.

Troha called, and the {4-Clubs} fell on the turn, which he again checked.

This time Duek bet 500,000, and once more, Troha called.

The river brought the {7-Diamonds}, and after another check from Troha, Duek moved all in for Troha's last 1,315,000.

Troha snap-called and rolled over {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} for a flopped full house.

Duek couldn't believe his bad luck as he flashed {k-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{x-}{x-} for a lesser flopped full house of fives full of kings and dumped his losing cards into the muck, sending a huge pot across the table.
