MrCleverFox • Level 8: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Heads Up: Evan Silverstein

Hand #217: On the last hand of heads up, Cliff Josephy raised to 60,000 from the button. Evan Silverstein raised all in. Josephy asked for a count, then made the call for 680,000 total.

Josephy: {A-Spades}{2-Diamonds}
Silverstein: {K-Hearts}{10-Spades}

The {5-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{j-Hearts} flop was huge for Silverstein, making him the favorite. According to the PokerNews Odds Calculator Silverstein was a 66% favorite to win the hand. The {3-Diamonds} on the turn was not one of those outs though, and Silverstein was still looking to catch up. It was the {5-Clubs} on the river that sealed the deal and gave the victory to Josephy.
