Richard Estep

Action folded to Richard Saunders in the small blind and he raised to 1,700,000. Richard Estep took a few minutes to think about it in the big blind, moved all in for 3,800,000 and Saunders called.

Estep: QsTd
Saunders: QcTs

It looked like another chopped pot, and then it got interesting on the two-spade Js5c3s flop.

“I got the bigger spade,” Estep said. “Put another spade out there.”

The dealer put the 8s on the turn and followed that with the 6s for the unlikely four-card spade flush double for Estep.

Richard Estep – 8,100,000 (16 bb)
Richard Saunders – 28,500,000 (57 bb)
