Michael Newman limped in for 30,000 from the button and Kharlin Sued checked his option in the big blind.

The flop was 5s5h2s, Sued checked, Newman bet 30,000, Sued check-raised to 80,000, and Newman called.

The turn was the 3d, Sued bet 125,000, Newman raised all in for 545,000, and Sued thought for a bit before he called with Js4s for flush and straight draws, while Newman tabled 8d5c for trip treys.

The river was the Tc, safe for Newman to win the pot and pull ahead into the chip lead.
