Ryan Riess

Ryan Riess opened to 3,000,000 from the cutoff and Mike Allis called from the big blind.

The flop came {2-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} and both players checked.

On the {8-Diamonds} turn, Allis checked to Riess, who bet 2,000,000. Allis called.

On the {8-Clubs} river, Allis fired first for 8,500,000, leaving Riess bewildered and looking at his rail. After about 20 or 30 seconds, Riess put over a third of his remaining stack in the middle and called it off.

Allis tapped the table and said "Nice hand" and flipped over {6-Clubs}{4-Spades} which had Riess exhale in excitement as he turned over {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs} for the win.
