Vitor Coelho bets 7,000 on the turn with the board reading QsJd2h3h and his opponent calls. The river is the 7c and Coelho tanks for a minute or so while contemplating his bet size.

Coelho bets 18,875 and his opponent immediately reaches for chips. He doesn’t take too long in piecing together the correct amount and splashing them into the middle.

Coelho tables QdQh, good for top set, and his opponent mucks his hand. Coelho overtakes the chip lead in the second flight and is sitting with 122,000.
