Philip Long opened to 125,000 from the hijack, and Gaetano Preite fired back with a three-bet to 325,000 from the small blind. Long clicked it back with a four-bet to 680,000, which induced a five-bet shove from Preite. Long called off for 2,655,000 total, and he was at risk with five cards to come.
Long was poised for a double-up, and he avoided any disaster on the board. Gaetano slipped to around 3.6 million.
