We missed the raising action that led to this pot, so we'll tell you what we know and let you fill in the blanks. When we walked up to the table, Wilfried Haerig was shoving for 685,000 from the small blind. Amanda Musumeci was under the gun, and she was calling all in with her covering stack, the two players racing for more than 1.4 million chips.
Musumeci found her pair right on the flop as it came out to pull her into a big lead. She applauded what she was seeing, but there were still two cards to come. The turn provided the gutterball sweat, and the river made Haerig the backdoor straight, marking his double up.
