Before the final hand of the night, [email protected]@ker held a chip lead of 4:1 and he decided to shove all his chips into the pot when the flop opened 4h Td 7d and his 4d Jd hit a pair of Fours. Surprisingly, his opponent made the call with 9d 5d. The flop and turn opened As and Js respectively, improving [email protected]@ker's hand and giving him the pot with Jacks and Fours, while the board didn't improve CyaanBaatna's hand.
