Monster Pot Recap: Nice River Nets Sahamies $94k
Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies rivered a straight flush to rake a massive pot from Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond and mTw-DaviN last night.
The Finn led out for $430 from the button, Galfond flatted from the small blind and mTw-DaviN raised to $1,800 from the big blind.
Sahamies opted to re-raise to $5,910 and once again Galfond called. mTw-DaviN had no intention of sitting on his aces, however, and he raised to $23k. Sahamies just called with $27k behind while Galfond called for his last $11k.
The flop came T♥ 7♥ 3♦ and mTw-DaviN immediately shipped his last $15k in the middle and Sahamies, with his monster draw, called, creating a $95,709 pot.
The Q♦ peeled off the deck on the turn and that gave Sahamies even more outs to a straight.
mTw-Davin must have been feeling pretty nervous heading to the river and in the end those concerns were justified as the river fell 8♥ to give Sahamies a straight flush and the biggest pot of the night.
You can see exactly how the action went down in our hand-replayer below.
Ilari Sahamies was actually hit or miss the rest of the session and finished with a relatively modest $94k. mTw-DaviN made a nice recovery and left with $70k in profit. Viktor "Isildur1" Blom was the big loser of the evening and after going up $202k earlier in the day ended up losing a total of $147k in the late evening/early morning.
