Lance Howard opened to 165,000 in middle position and Brek Schutten went all in for 1,570,000 on the button. The blinds folded and Howard called to put Schutten at risk.
Schutten had pocket sixes, and Howard had A-K. Schutten flopped a set on 8h 6s 2d, and the turn was the 6c, giving Schutten quads. The 5d river did not matter, and Schutten doubled up. Again.
“That was a big one,” Howard commented after the hand.
Brek Schutten – 3,320,000 (42 bb)
Lance Howard – 6,150,000 (77 bb)
