jon miller vs sundiata devore
Jon Miller (Left) vs Sundiata DeVore, Day 2 Level 18

Miller and DeVore just got mixed up in a 4-bet pot preflop. The action started with an open from Miller to 17k in middle position. DeVore, to his immediate left, 3-bet to 60k. Action folded back to Miller and he put in another raise to 135k and was called.

Flop: A♦Q♠9♠ Pot: 291k

Miller continued his aggression with a bet of 100k and was called.

Turn: 3♠ Pot: 491k

Miller has ~400k behind to DeVore’s ~300K as the pot has been inflated due to the early aggression. The action slows down on the turn as both players check.

River: 7♥

Check/check once again and they go to showdown.

DeVore K♦K♥ vs Miller J♥J♦

DeVore takes the pot with the higher pocket pair and moves up to ~790k. Miller survives the encounter, partially thanks to the scary board, and will continue with ~400k.
