The   turn saw Magnus and the middle position player check for a second time. Not dissuaded by getting two callers on the flop, the cutoff pushed a chunkier 5,500 into the middle. It was not enough to shed either of his opponents, however, both of whom called.

Action checked through the   river and Magnus showed down   . She was beaten to the pot by the middle position player who tabled    to scoop the pot and send Magnus down below 50,000.
