Landon Tice

Landon Tice raised to 200,000 preflop, and Jesse Lonis reraised to 1.45 million (leaving 225,000 behind). Tice reraised all in, and Lonis then proceeded to tank through his remaining five extra time chips before he called for the last of his stack. The two players then flipped over their cards.

Tice: Ah9d
Lonis: 6c6h

Board: 10h7c6d8d9s

The runout certainly kept things interesting, but it ultimately led to the two players chopping up the pot with a ten-high straight. Tice was at 5.85 million after the hand, while Lonis held 1.7 million.

Landon Tice – 5,850,000 (58 bb)
Jesse Lonis – 1,700,000 (17 bb)
