Scott Baumstein raised to 40,000 from the hijack, Josh Reichard called in the cutoff, and the player in the big blind called.

The flop came 9s8h4c and action checked to Reichard who bet 40,000. The big blind called, Baumstein check-raised to 115,000, Reichard called, and the big blind folded.

The turn was the Qh, Baumstein bet 95,000, and Reichard called.

The river was the 8c, Baumstein bet 270,000 (leaving 5,000 behind), and Reichard called.
