"Tydarax" raised to 3,200,000 from under the gun and was called by "luelue399" in the cutoff while the rest folded.

They both checked through the {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} flop to the {5-Spades} on the turn. "Tydarax" checked again and "luelue399" bet 4,400,000 which "Tydarax" called.

The river completed the board with the {9-Clubs}, and "Tydarax" checked for the last time. "luelue399" continued with a bet of 16,000,000 for "Tydarax" to tank and then called but mucked when "luelue399" tabled {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for the turned set of fives.
