All the Sevens; Chop the Pot

KaleGozer • Level 33: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante
Wei Huang

Manig Loeser raised to 500,000 on the button with {a-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and Wei Huang called {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs} from the small blind. With {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds} in the big blind, Viktor Katzenberger three-bet shoved all in for 5,000,000 and Loeser folded.

Huang, who had Katzenberger covered, asked for a count. The Chinese was out of time bank cards after the earlier clash with Nicola Grieco, and called it off within the allotted time.

Katzenberger flopped huge on {7-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{2-Hearts} to improve to trip deuces, but Huang still had the nut flush draw to win the hand. The {7-Spades} on the turn improved Katzenberger to a full house and his rail loudly celebrated and shouted: "Double up!"

Katzenberger went over to his rail and handed out fistbumps to each of his railbirds. As if he had jinxed it, the {7-Hearts} landed on the river for an improbable chop pot. It took the Chinese pair of Huang and Haoxiang Wang about two seconds before slowly realizing the pot was indeed chopped and everyone had a good laugh about it.
