The player on the button raised to 3,000, Matthew Zarcadoolas reraised from the small blind to 13,000, and the player on the button four-bet it to 28,000. Zarcadoolas thinks for a while before he called.

Both players checked to the river on a board of Qh6c3cQc8d, and Zarcadoolas bet 46,000. The player on the button tanked for a very long time before he folded, and Zarcadoolas took the pot.
