Jorryt van Hoof

Will Tonking had the button.

Felix Stephensen opened to 1.1 million and Jorryt van Hoof called next to act as the dealer spread a {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}{10-Hearts} flop and Stephensen checked and van Hoof bet out 1.3 million.

Stephensen called as the {5-Hearts} landed on the turn and he checked again. Van Hoof pushed out a bet of 2.9 million and Stephensen took his time before again check-calling.

The river completed the board with the {A-Hearts} and Stephensen checked for a third time as van Hoof bet out 3.4 million to make this pot bigger then three player's stacks - Martin Jacobson, Billy Pappas and Bruno Politano.

Stephensen deliberated for a few moments and then mucked while slipping to 24 million as van Hoof climbed to over 46.5 million.
