The next hand after John Orfanos doubled thru Richard Gayler, Gayler raised from the button to 40,000, and Orfanos called from the big blind.

Both players checked to the turn on a board of Kc3s2s9h, and Orfanos moved all in for 82,000. Gayler thought for a while before he called, and they turned over their cards.
