A few minutes later, Tureniec completed the small blind to 100,000, and Miller checked her option in the big blind.

The flop came Kc5s5h, Tureniec bet 100,000, Miller raised to about 350,000, and Tureniec called.

The turn card was the As, Tureniec checked, Miller bet 650,000, and Tureniec called.

The river card was the 7h, and both players checked. Tureniec showed AhJc to win the pot with two pair, aces and fives, and Miller mucked.
