Jay Farber doubles

Ryan Riess raised to two million on the button, Jay Farber defended, and the flop fell {k-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{q-Spades}. Farber checked, Riess bet 2.5 million, and Farber check-raised all in for 16.3 million. Riess snap-called.

Farber: {j-Clubs}{10-Spades}
Riess: {k-Spades}{10-Hearts}

The entire Penn & Teller Theatre rose to it's feet as the dealer waited for the television crew to cue him. When it was time, he wrapped the table and delivered the {9-Hearts} on the turn.

Farber's rail exploded. Riess could only win the event with a jack on the river to chop, but it was not to be as the {q-Clubs} bricked off on the river.

The dealer is confirming the counts now, and the players are on a 10-minute break.
