Johannes Becker completed the blind.

"Oh, friendly poker," big blind Daniel Negreanu said. "Let me see if I can be friendly."

He did check, and the board was {8-Clubs}{q-Spades}{9-Spades}{10-Clubs} after both checked the flop. Becker bet 130,000, and Negreanu called. Becker bet 360,000 on the {k-Hearts} river, and Negreanu quickly called again.

"Straight," Becker announced, tabling {j-Spades}{4-Diamonds} for a king-high straight.

"Me too," Negreanu replied, showing an inferior ten-high straight with {7-Hearts}{6-Spades}.

No-Limit Hold'em

In the first hand back from the break, Johannes Becker raised to 200,000 from under the gun. Isaac Haxton, in the small blind, carefully contemplated his next move and three-bet to 870,000, which Becker called.

The flop fell {10-Hearts}{8-Spades}{4-Spades}, and Haxton checked. Becker made it 650,000 to go, and Haxton called. After the {7-Hearts} turn, Haxton checked again, and Becker bet 1,300,000. That was enough to win the pot as Haxton quickly folded.
