In a heads-up contest that has quickly devolved into a preflop shove fest, Sean Getzwiller and Sadan Turker again got all the chips in the middle before the flop. Turker raised to 450,000 from the button, Getzwiller three-bet shoved and Turker instantly called. Starting with nearly equal stacks, the winner of this all-in confrontation would claim a stack of over 10,000,000 chips for a massive lead.
The classic race situation was on and both players stood to watch the dealer burn and turn.
The door card was a beautiful king for Turker and he must have thought he had it locked up, but a ten was lurking just beneath it to dash his hopes. Getzwiller had flopped a set to leave Turker drawing extremely thin. Only a runner-runner combination to a straight would save Turker now.
No miracles were forthcoming and Getzwiller had scored the massive double up, giving him a stack of 11,600,000 and leaving Turker crippled with only 750,000.
