Melad Marji (button) and Michael Duek (big blind) put in 225,000 each to see a flop of 9d4s4c. Duek checked, Marji bet 175,000, and Duek check-raised to 500,000. Marji tanked for a while before he called.

The turn card was the 8s, and both players checked.

The river card was the Jh, and Duek bets 1,100,000, nearly enough to put Marji all in. Marji tanks for a long time before he folds, and Duek takes the pot.

Michael Duek  –  3,950,000  (53 bb)
Melad Marji  –  1,250,000  (17 bb)

About half a dozen hands later, Melad Marji raised to 225,000, and Michael Duek called from the big blind.

Both players checked to the turn on a board of 6d3s2d3d, Duek bet 200,000, and Marji thought for a while before he called.

The river card was the 5s, and Duek moved all in. Marji tanked for a long time before he called all in for 425,000.

Marji showed KdQcJs3h for trip threes, and Duek mucked. Marji won the pot to double up in chips.

Melad Marji  –  1,775,000  (24 bb)
