On the last hand of Level 11, Chad Smith raises to 4,500 from under-the-gun and the action folds back to Pej Preemo in the big blinds Preemo calls and we get a flop of 9♣8♥5♠. Both players check, and the dealer puts the 8♣ out on the turn.
Preemo bets 3,500 and Smith calls without much thought.
The river 9♥ double-pairs the board and Preemo shakes his head, but bets 10,000. Smith doesn't take long to think it over and announces a call.
Preemo turns over 8♠8♦ for turned quads and Smith mucks without showing.
Pej Preemo - 214,200
Chad Smith - 65,300
