Action folded around to the blinds and Loek van Wely raised to 125,000 from the small. Maria Konnikova three-bet shoved from the big for 680,000 and van Wely called to put her at risk.

Van Wely: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}
Konnikova: {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

Van Wely had a commanding lead with his aces and Konnikova needed a lot of help from the deck to preserve her tournament life. She picked up some additional outs in the form of an open-ended straight draw when the flop came {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Spades}. The {10-Clubs} on the turn made Konnikova's straight and left van Wely in need of a spade on the river. The {2-Clubs} changed nothing and Konnikova took the pot to double up.
