Wesley Chong raises to 360,000 in middle position. Roger Sippl asks, "Do you have any blacks behind?" referring to the purplish-black 100,000-denomination chips. "I have about 2,000,000 behind," Chong replies. Sippl calls from the small blind, and Joseph Somerville folds his big blind. 

Both players check the     flop.

The turn is the  . Sippl bets 425,000, and Chong announces that he is all-in. Sippl asks the dealer for a count, and when the dealer is almost finished, Sippl says, "I call."
