Royce Matheson raised to 60,000 from under the gun and Anthony Marquez put in a three-bet to 205,000 from the big blind. Matheson four-bet to 560,000 and Marquez five-bet shoved for 1,780,000. Matheson asked for a count and eventually called.

Marquez was at risk with {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}, but well ahead of the {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} of Matheson.

The flop came {8-Hearts}{5-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and Marquez was still in the lead with two kings. The turn sealed the deal with the {k-Clubs}, and Marquez's rail erupted as the {5-Hearts} hit the river.

Marquez has now taken over the chip lead and Matheson is left with a little more than 11 big blinds.
