Dan Sepiol raised to 175,000 from the button, Chance Kornuth three-bet to 500,000 from the big blind, Sepiol four-bet shoved for 3,290,000, and Kornuth called with KcKd, leading Sepiol’s QsQd.

The board ran out Qh9d7d8sJc, giving Sepiol a set of queens to double up through Kornuth again.

“Did you get that in ahead or behind?” asked one of Sepiol’s friends (who ran up to the table mid-runout).

“All in pre, so behind,” said Sepiol.

“For the third time,” smiled and said Kornuth.

“You count the ace-nine vs. eights as behind?” asked Sepiol.

“Only when I lose,” joked Kornuth.

Dan Sepiol  –  6,660,000  (83 bb)
Chance Kornuth  –  3,615,000  (45 bb)
