Matthew Yorra opened the button to 20,000, and Dan Heimiller defended his big blind.

The flop was 7c6h2d. Heimiller checked, Yorra continued for 40,000, and Heimiller called. The turn was the 6d, and both players checked. The river was the Qd, and Heimiller led out for 105,000. Yorra pondered for close to five minutes before calling, committing about 40 percent of his remaining stack in the process.

Heimiller showed AcQh, winning the pot with queens up.

“What were you calling with?” Yorra asked under his breath.

“What? On the flop?” Heimiller asked. “I don’t remember what happened on the flop. But I had ace-queen. That’s a pretty good hand.”

Dan Heimiller – 1,160,000 (145 bb)
Matthew Yorra – 140,000 (18 bb)
