The board reads 109♣6♣, and there is around 50,000 in the middle.  Carlo Sciannameo checks in early position, and Brenton Reihl bets 20,000 in middle position. Sciannameo raises to 50,000, and Reihl calls.

The turn is the 3. Sciannameo bets out 70,000, and Reihl moves all in.  Sciannameo sits back in his chair, and asks for a chip count.  The dealer counts out Reihl's 305,000, and Sciannameo asks the dealer to pull in the 70,000.

Sciannameo thinks for over two full minutes, before Reihl calls the clock on him. The floor walks over and gives the 30-second countdown. About ten seconds in, Sciannameo looks over at Reihl and asks, "230?"  Reihl nods, and with three seconds left to act, Sciannameo tosses in the chips to call.

"Nice call," Reihl says as he tables 7♠7.

Sciannameo turns over A♠10♣ for a pair of tens.

Unfortunately for Reihl, the Q river does not improve his hand, and he is eliminated in 45th place, taking home $2,254.

"Now you have 1.5," table-mate Matthew Wantman says to Sciannameo as the massive pot is pushed over to him.

Carlo Sciannameo - 1,500,000 (187 bb)
Brenton Reihl - Eliminated in 45th place, for $2,254
