Max Kruse opened to 700,000 and Dorian Melchers shoved for 7,275,000. Kruse deliberated for a couple of minutes, asking for a count and asked if he was covering before finally making the call.

Unbelievably, the arrived on the river, which caused Kruse to roar in excitement, leaving Melchers stunned as he shook hands and walked away from the final table.
