The flop came {10-Clubs}{8-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Coburn checked. Duke bet 1.5 million and Dimmig called. Coburn folded.

The turn was the {6-Clubs} and both players checked. The dealer put out the {6-Spades} on the river and they again checked. Duke showed {A-}{8-} and Dimmig {10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for tens and sixes. Dimmig raked in the pot.

Hand #181: Coburn opened for 1.2 million from the button. Duke called from the small blind and Dimmig also called.

The flop came {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}. Duke and Dimmig checked and Coburn bet 1.6 million. Duke called and Dimmig folded.

The turn was the {K-Spades} and Duke check-called Coburn's 2 million bet.
