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.
The players were racing, and the flop favored Shimerfarb. The 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 , and Shimerfarb collected Hayes' stack.
