Steven Snyder raised to 30,000 from middle position, Michael Graffeo called from the cutoff, and Millard Hale three-bet to 130,000 from the button. Both Snyder and Graffeo called.

The flop was 8d5h7s and action checked to Hale who continued for 160,000. Snyder used a time-extension before he check-raised all in for 1,085,000. Graffeo folded and Hale called with AdAc. Snyder, however, tabled 7d7h for a set of sevens.

The Qc turn and Kc river completed the board, safe for Snyder to double up.

Steven Snyder  –  2,600,000  (173 bb)
Millard Hale  –  400,000  (27 bb)
