David Borg started the action by raising to 250,000. Tomas Junek thought for about 30 seconds before assembling a three bet of 700,000, and sliding it into the middle. Borg took little time in moving all in, and Junek quickly called.

Junek: {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Borg: {k-Spades}{5-Spades}

Both rails were yelling out for cards as the dealer fanned out a flop of {2-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. Borg caught a piece of the flop, but he would need to get more, as Junek's tens were still in the lead. The turn brought the {a-Spades}, bringing a straight draw for a chop on board. Borg would need a king, five, or three to survive the hand.

The river: {6-Hearts}

Junek's rail stormed the table, nearly knocking it over in the process, while a dejected Borg headed to his rail to be consoled. For his valiant effort, Borg will take home $410,517.
