Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Fohrenbach Snags River Royal for Lead


Catching the action with Ricky Fohrenbach four-betting preflop to 31,500 more to Martin Kabrhel, Kabrhel made the call as the flop fell {K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}.

Fohrenbach continued for 56,000 only to have Kabrhel bump it up to 112,000. Fohrenbach shipped all in for 268,500 and Kabrhel made the call.

Fohrenbach: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}
Kabrhel: {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}

With Fohrenbach in commanding shape to double through, the {10-Clubs} and {A-Clubs} on the turn and river saw a straight spread on the board.

Both players believed the pot was going to be chopped up until Cliff Josephy announced from the rail, "Royal!"

It was then that the players and the dealer noticed Fohrenbach's rivered royal flush, and he was soon pushed the pot to move to over 620,000 in chips.
