Eric Buchman raised second to go, and John Monnette three-bet from the small blind. Buchman called, and we've seen him play a lot of pots like this in position with pretty good success.

Monnette continued out on the {10-Hearts} {7-Diamonds} {5-Clubs} flop, and Buchman called. It went check-check on the {2-Spades} turn, and the river came the {4-Spades}. Monnette paused to consider, then splashed out one last bet. Buchman quickly called, and Monnette essentially surrendered with a mumble and a pause. Buchman tabled {A-Clubs} {7-Clubs}, and it was good.

That pot moved Monnette down to 605,000, while Buchman climbed to 865,000. He also won the next two consecutive pots, binking the magical one-million chip mark as he dragged the last one. If there was any question before, it's clear now that Buchman is the man to beat tonight.
