All three players limped for 10,000 each to see a flop of 7c5d2c. The blinds checked, and Timothy Banks bet 25,000. Melisa Singh folded the small blind, and David Prociak called from the big blind.

The turn card was the 6s, and both players checked. The river card was the Qc, and they checked again.

Two hands later, all three players limped to see a flop of Kc4h3c. The blinds checked to Prociak, who bet 10,000, and then Banks check-raised from the small blind to 60,000. Singh folded, and Prociak called.

The turn card was the Jc, and Banks moved all in. Prociak folded, saying he had the best hand on the flop, and Banks took the pot without showing his cards.
