Matas Cimbolas opened to 250,000 and was called by Sheddy Siddiqui on the button followed by Michael Newman in the big blind. The flop came , Newman checked, Cimbolas continued for 325,000 and both players called.
Newman and Cimbolas checked the turn and Siddiqui took the lead for 835,000. Newman mucked and Cimbolas took a long time to think about it. At times it looked like he was going to muck, then he counted out chips, confirmed the bet, and called.
It went check/check after the river and Siddiqui tabled . Cimbolas turned over his and they chopped up the huge, slow-building pot.
