What started with Smith Sirisakorn's limp from under the gun ended up in a massive clash in which Bonnie Rossi was eliminated. However, she acted only as a sparring partner in the hand, while Sirisakorn and Jared Bleznick went to war.
After Sirisakorn's limp, Rossi completed from the small blind, and Bleznick checked his option. The fireworks began on the flop. Rossi bet, Bleznick raised, and Sirisakorn three-bet. Rossi called off for 52,000 total anyway. Bleznick called, as well.
The fight for the side pot continued on the turn where Bleznick check-raised. Sirisakorn was ready for the next round and called.
The river was a brick, but Bleznick and Sirisakorn were still firing. Bleznick bet, Sirisakorn raised and Bleznick reraised. Sirisakorn sighed and called the three-bet.
Rossi knew she had only a role of the nearest spectator, but the showdown between Sirisakorn and Bleznick was a sick one. Bleznick turned a straight flush while Sirisakorn spiked the ace-high flush.
The giant pot improved Bleznick to roughly 1.9 million as the play continued seven-handed.
