There have been a slew of small pots and chips have been steadily moving around the table without too much ground being made up by anyone. Joe Palma took the first significant pot in awhile after he opened the cutoff and Derek Staib defended his big blind.

Flop: 4♥8♥4♠ Pot: ~1.6M

Staib checked. Palma bet 725k and was called.

Turn: 5♠ Pot: ~3.05M


River: 9♥

Staib checked for the 3rd time. Palma bet 1.8M and was called. Palma tabled the K♥10♥ for a flush and scooped the pot worth ~6.65M. Palma now has ~25M and Staib is left with ~15M. After his slight hiccup against Tom McMahon, Palma has recovered and then some.
