Derek Staib opened the pot to 450k from under the gun at the six-handed table. Tom McMahon, in the cutoff, 3-bet jammed for 3.65M total. Staib thought for awhile before eventually calling and putting McMahon at risk.

McMahon picks up a premium hand at the perfect time and becomes the second player to escape being the short-stack for the time being. Staib is left with ~6.5M after the hand.
