Frank Williams opened from the cutoff at the 5-handed table to 450k. Ben Beahm called from the button. Joe Palma 3-bet to to 1.4M out of the big blind getting the initial raiser, Williams to fold. Beahm came along to see the flop heads-up.

Flop: 7♣2♠9♣ Pot: ~3.3M

Palma bet 1.775M and is called by Beahm.

Turn: 3♠ Pot: ~6.8M

Palma thought for a few seconds before announcing all-in on the turn. Palma’s stack was ~6.5M which had Beahm’s ~4.5M covered. After a few moments, Beahm folded and showed the J♣J♥. Palma returned the favor once Beahm said he would like to see and showed the A♣K♣ for Ace-high and a lot of outs had Beahm decided to risk his tournament.
