Buhr Scoops Massive Pot Against Savinelli

Josh_Cahlik • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Benjamin Buhr

Carlo Savinelli opened the action with a raise to 80,000 from the hijack. It folded to Benjamin Buhr who flatted out of the small blind. The big blind folded, leaving the duo heads up to the flop.

The dealer put out a flop of {Q-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and both players checked to see the {3-Diamonds} on fourth street. Buhr checked it once again and Savinelli followed suit. The {10-Clubs} finished the board on the river and Buhr led out for 230,000. The fireworks began when Savinelli reached deep into his stack and came out with a raise to 530,000. Almost instantly after seeing Savinelli's raise, Buhr reached for raising chips as well. He double fisted 1.2 million into the middle, putting the pressure back on Savinelli.

In the end, Savinelli announced a call but mucked his hand after seeing Buhr's {A-Hearts}{4-Hearts} for the wheel. Buhr scooped the massive pot and now has about 4.055 million in chips.
