Martin Olali shoved from the cutoff for 300,000 and Salomon Sebban did the same on the button for 450,000. Pedro Ventura was sitting in the small blind and asked for a count, the dealer confirmed and Ventura decided to also shove. Evangelos Bechrakis asked for a count of Ventura's stack, the dealer counted it all out and determined that Ventura had 1,450,000 in front of him. Bechrakis took a few seconds and then decided to call. All the other players who weren't in a hand flocked to the table to see what was happening.
The board ran out for Bechrakis' pocket queens to hold to eliminate the three other players and provide the remaining players with a pay jump.
