Robert Cowen then min-raised the button to 160,000 and Benjamin Kaupp came along in the big blind to see a flop of {j-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}. The check by Kaupp led to a bet worth 280,000 by Cowen and the call of Kaupp followed.

On the {7-Diamonds} turn, Kaupp checked the second street in a row before calling a second barrel worth 420,000 as the {k-Diamonds} river completed the board.

Kaupp checked once more and Cowen now fired a bet of 1,180,000. Almost one minute passed before Kaupp called and he then mucked when Cowen tabled the {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}. The stream revealed Kaupp held {8-Spades}{6-Hearts}.
