With the board showing 8c7d4sQc on the turn, Chad Eveslage checked, Nick Pupillo bet 900,000, and Eveslage thought for a while before he called.

The river card was the 10c, Eveslage checked, Pupillo bet 1,400,000, and Eveslage quickly called.

Pupillo showed Qs3s for a pair of queens, but Eveslage turned over 6d5d to win the pot — and take the chip lead — with a flopped eight-high straight.

Chad Eveslage  –  7.0 million  (70 bb)
