Jason Tompkins three-bet to 169,000 from the big blind before the flop and Ludovic Lacay called from the cut-off seat. The flop came and Tompkins fired another 148,000. Lacay made the call and both players saw the come on the turn.
Tompkins checked and so did Lacay. Dealer burned and turned the on the river. Tompkins lead for 244,000 and Lacay answered this with a raise, pushing in three big piles of T5,000 chips and one yellow pile of T25,000 chips for a total of 600,000.
It was a tough decision for Tompkins to make and he thought about it for a couple of minutes. Tompkins finally made the call, but it turned out to be a bad one as Lacay flipped for a straight. Tompkins folded and saw Lacay collect the massive pot of 1.5 million.
