Homer • Level 23: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante
Paul Volpe vs Gautam Sabharwal

It was passed to Paul Volpe in the small blind and he shoved for 284,000. Gautam Sabharwal asked for a count, then decided to give him a spin.

Volpe: {K-Spades}{8-Spades}
Sabharwal: {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

The flop came {Q-Clubs}{9-Spades}{9-Diamonds} and Sabharwal picked up a straight draw but the {4-Spades} turn gave Volpe a flush draw. The {7-Clubs} river changed nothing but a couple of Sabharwal supporters cheered thinking their guy had made a straight.

"Are they cheering for me?" asked Volpe, slightly confused. "Thanks, you guys."
