Kia Mohajeri opened for 1.2 million and Dwyte Pilgrim called. The flop came K♥ T♠ 9♠. Dwyte checked, Kia bet 2 million, and Dwyte called.
The turn was the 7♦ and Dwyte led out for 2 million. Kia shoved and Dwyte snap-called. Kia turned over K♠9♣ for two pair. Dwyte rolled over Q♥J♠ for the King-high straight and the current nuts.
'Eight percent away from the title, baby!" said Dwyte. He's referring to Kia's 4 outs to win, needing a full house to beat him. There was quite a delay as the house was on their feet roaring.
When the dealer finally burned and rolled the river card, it was the 5♦ and it is OVER!
