With the board showing 7h7s3sQh on the turn and a little more than 300K already in the pot, Adam Rothschild checked from the big blind, the player in the cutoff bet 135,000, and Rothschild check-raised to 300,000.

The cutoff tanked for a long time until somebody called for a clock, but the cutoff called before the floorperson arrived for the countdown.

The river card double-paired the board with the 3h, and Rothschild moved all in for 350,000. The cutoff tanked for a while before he called with Ad9d for the two pair on the board with his ace kicker.

But Rothschild turned over 8c7c to win the pot with a full house, sevens full of threes, to double up in chips.

Adam Rothschild  –  1,625,000  (54 bb)
