You Got To "Have It" To Beat Someone That You Think "Doesn't Have It"
 
 

With close to 450,000 chips in the pot and the board showing       Richard Robertson cuts out a bet of 500,000 and slides it across the line.

His opponent snap calls and Robertson shakes his head before tabling    for ace high.

"Wow, you got it, I have ace high too," his opponent disappointedly says, tabling his own   .

The entire table is in shock and awe, with the dealer even double and triple checking the cards and board as potentially the biggest pot of the tournament just played out with two players turning up without a pair.

"There was no way you had it I thought," he adds, while Robertson, almost in disbelief takes in a pot that moves him up close to the 2,000,000 chip mark and up 'The Colossus' Day 3 leaderboard.
