Sean Getzwiller opened the betting by raising to 350,000 on his button. In a departure from his usual quick action, Sadan Turker began rubbing his face while he slowly cut out stacks of chips.

Sean Getzweller

After four consecutive pots in which a single raised won the blinds and antes, Sean Getzwiller raised to 250,000 from the button and Sadan Turker stared his man down intently. He must have seen something he liked, because Turker decided to put Getzwiller to the test by reraising all-in.

Getzwiller snap-called and stood to throw down his   , finding himself in a dominating position against the    held by Turker. With the shorter stack, it was Getzwiller who has at risk and both players waited for the dealer to decide their fates.

Flop:    

Getzwiller flopped a four flush and Turker was still behind, but he added a gutshot straight draw to his list of outs. The turn card fell   and nothing had changed. Turker would need to spike a seven or a non-diamond four to eliminate Getzwiller and capture his first WSOP bracelet.

River:  

With his supporters calling loudly for an ace, the dealer delivered the right card and Getzwiller had doubled up to 6,750,000. This means both players are effectively even in chips and this heads-up duel will begin anew.

A wry grin spread over Getzwiller's face and he flashed his    to his supporters in the audience, before adding the large pot to his stack. The pure bluff was executed perfectly, as Getzwillers min-raise on the river looked like a value bet begging for a call.
