Khoa Nguyen was first into the pot with a raise to 625,000, and Phil Collins three-bet to 1.5 million from the button. Next door in the small blind, Anton Makievskyi figured a cold four-bet was in order, and he made it 4 million total. That folded Nguyen rather quickly, but Collins made another raise over the top -- all in. Makievskyi pointed a firm finger at Collins' chips as he nonverbally demanded the count. It was 16.095 million, and it would be some long, agonizing time in the tank before Makievskyi surrendered.
"I've been waiting for this moment... for all my life!... Oh, Phil!" his fans yell in unison.
