Mark Schmid raised to 160,000 and Justin Cohen made the call. On the flop, Cohen led out for 500,000 and Schmid called. On the turn, Cohen bet 1,000,000 and after some though, Schmid moved all in for 2,150,000. Cohen snap-called and the players showed their hands.
Cohen was behind on the flop with his lower pair but managed to hit two pair on the turn. As long as he could fade a king, nine or six on the river, all the chips, the bracelet and the first place money would be his. Before the river came, Cohen yelled “one time” as Schmid sat silently although his rail shouted a number of different things.
And just like that, Schmid made kings up to survive, double through Cohen and take over the chip lead.
