Huge Pot As Aido Grabs Lead from Nordkvist

Yardley • Level 15: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante
Sergio Aido

Joel Nordkvist has just played a huge pot with Sergio Aido. On the turn of a board reading {8-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} Nordkvist check-called a bet of over 100,000 and saw the river fall the {8-Clubs}.

Nordkvist made his last check and Aido moved all in for just over 270,000. Decision time for Nordkvist who if he called and got it wrong would be all but felted. It took a minute of thinking but in the end he did made the call. There seemed to be a moment of confusion as to who had won the hand, even between the players themselves.

It looked as though Aido thought that if he was called he had lost as he tapped the table and showed {a-Spades}{2-Spades}. Nordkvist turned over his nut flush {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Aido though had a full house, albeit the worst possible one. Nordkvist exhaled in stunned disbelief as his chips slid over to Aido.
