Giuseppe Iadisernia limped from UTG+1 for 5,000, Stephen Song raised from the hijack to 15,000, Philip Shing reraised from the cutoff to 40,000, and Martin Zamani four-bet it from the small blind to 78,000.

Iadisernia and Song both quickly folded, and Shing thought for a while before he called.

The flop came Jd9h3d, Zamani bet 20,000, and Shing called.

The turn card was the 6h, and both players checked.

The river card was the 4c, Zamani checked, and Shing thought for a while before he checked behind.

Zamani quickly turned over Ah8c for ace high and said, “I was going to call.”

Shing said, “I guess it’s good I didn’t bet,” and then he mucked his cards. Zamani won the pot with his ace high.

Martin Zamani  –  595,000  (119 bb)
Philip Shing  –  255,000  (51 bb)
