Matthew Jarvis raised to 710,000 to open the pot, and short stack Brandon Stevens said, "All right, let's see a flop," as he splashed in the call. It cost him about 20% of his remaining stack to see the flop.
The dealer spread out , and Steven checked. Jarvis was careful, and he checked it back to see the turn. When Steven checked again, Jarvis took his cue to bet 820,000.
"Well, I made a pair on the turn," Jarvis said with a frown. He promptly mucked, slipping back under 3 million chips.
