Jeter Brock raised from the button to 100,000, James Gunter called from the small blind, and Donny Rubinstein reraised from the big blind to 150,000. Brock four-bet it to 200,000, and Gunter and Rubinstein both called.

The flop came Qc4h2h, Gunter checked, and Rubinstein bet 50,000. Brock folded, and Gunter called.

The turn card was the 7h, Gunter checked, Rubinstein bet 100,000, and Gunter called.

The river card paired the board with the 7s, Gunter checked, Rubinstein bet 100,000, and Gunter called all in for less.
