The Ten-Million-Chip Man


The first two players folded to the blinds, and Martin Finger raised to 160,000. David Boyaciyan defended his big blind, and the dealer gave them a {Q-Spades} {2-Spades} {Q-Hearts} flop. Check-check, and the {A-Clubs} hit fourth street. Now Finger led out with 170,000, and Boyaciyan made a quick call. On the river, the {8-Clubs} drew a check from Finger, and Boyaciyan took his cue to make a bet of 255,000. It didn't work. Finger check-raised to 850,000 total, and Boyaciyan gave it a forlorn look for a couple minutes before surrendering.
