Paul Richardson was in the small blind and completed, putting action onto Arish Nat, who pumped it up to 400,000. Richardson called and the flop came . Nat made a continuation-bet of 400,000 and Richardson reached for chips.
"All in," he announced. Nat called instantly.
"What is that?" said Nat from the other side of the table, leaning in to see what he was up against as he tabled .
Though Nat had a pair of threes, there were 17 cards in the deck he needed to fade between outs to an open-ended straight, overcards pairing, or the board double-pairing to counterfeit Nat's threes. The turn came to do the latter, leaving Nat in need of hitting a three to double or one of the remaining jacks, eights, kings, or aces in the deck to chop the pot. The river fell to improve Richardson further to a straight and the two got up to shake hands as the tournament concluded, with Nat taking home $80,761 for his efforts.
