Two Pair for Steven

[user80015]

With the action folding to Brandon Steven in the cutoff, he raised to 42,000 with Nicholas Rainey calling from the small blind.

The flop fell down {10-Spades}{k-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Rainey led out for 39,000 with Steven making the call.

The turn landed the {3-Clubs} and Rainey again led; this time for 68,000, with Steven again smooth-calling.

The river landed the {7-Clubs} and Rainey checked before Steven pushed out a bet of 107,000 to put Rainey deep into the think-tank.

After nearly two minutes of deliberation, Rainey made the call, but mucked at the sight of Steven's {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} as to 1,450,000 while Steven collected the pot to move to 780,000 in chips.
