Jeffrey Gencarelli raised to 1.6 million from the cutoff and Michael Gathy three-bet to 4 million on the button. Darryl Ronconi then cold four-bet to 9 million in the big blind. Gencarelli folded and Gathy called.

The flop came {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Ronconi bet 10 million and Gathy called.

When the {5-Diamonds} came on the turn, Ronconi jammed for 9.1 million, and Gathy thought about it but ultimately called.

Darryl Ronconi: {k-Spades}{q-Spades}
Michael Gathy: {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

Gathy needed a river queen but the {4-Spades} completed the board to vault Ronconi into the chip lead and leave Gathy with less than two big blinds.
