No More Stacks for "Gstaks"

mnuwwarah • Level 13: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante
John Hayes couldn't win a flip for his tournament life.

Gennady Shimerfarb opened to 14,000 from early position, and John "JohnnyGstaks" Hayes jammed for 64,500 more from the button. After getting the count and thinking it over briefly, Shimerfarb made the call.

Shimerfarb: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Hayes: {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

The players were racing, and the {9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{5-Spades} flop favored Shimerfarb. The {7-Clubs} turn favored him even more, and he now needed to dodge only a six, which would leave him chopping the pot, and a ten, which would give Hayes a straight. The river was the {k-Diamonds}, and Shimerfarb collected Hayes' stack.
