Nicholas E. Blumenthal raised in early position, Aditya Agarwal three-bet to 42,000 in the cutoff, and the action folded back to Blumenthal, who four-bet to 84,000. Agarwal returned to the tank.

"One thirty-five," he finally announced, pushing forward a stack of orange T5,000 chips.

It was Blumenthal's turn to tank, and after 90 seconds or so he decided to call, risking a third of his stack. The flop fell {7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}, Blumenthal checked, and Agarwal fired out 105,000. Blumenthal moved all in for 276,000, and Agarwal called.

Blumenthal: {7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}
Agarwal: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}

There was a break in the action to allow the ESPN cameras to get in position, and when they were ready, the dealer burned and turned the {a-Hearts}. Blumenthal shot back in his chair and threw his hands on his head, but he was far from drawing dead - any seven, six, three, or eight would keep him alive.

The {3-Clubs} completed the board, giving Blumenthal a straight, and once again he threw his hands on his head.

"Jeeeeeeeeeeeez," he groaned at the dealer.

Blumenthal doubled to 850,000 chips, while Agarwal fell to 805,000.
