The action folded to Patrick Renkers in the hi-jack and he opened to 55,000 only to have Marc McLaughlin three-bet the button to 139,000. Once the play returned to Renkers, he pushed out 345,000 only to have McLaughlin five-bet to 660,000.
The Dutchman considered his options then moved all in for 2,580,000 with McLaughlin snap-calling!
With Renkers in trouble and needing to find one of the two case queens, the flop changed little apart from giving Renkers backdoor outs to a straight. The turn of the would leave him with just two outs, but when the completed the board on the river, Renkers was sent to the rail as McLaughlin soared to 5,820,000 in chips.
