123md • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante
Javed Abrahams vs. Pat Walsh

Hand #146: Pat Walsh raised to 250,000 on the button and Javed Abrahams folded his big blind.

Hand #147: Abrahams raised to 200,000 on the button and Walsh called from the big blind.

The flop fell {9-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and Walsh led out for 375,000. Abrahams raised to 1.225 million, Walsh reraised the pot, and Abrahams reraised all in. Walsh called all in for 4.69 million.

Walsh: {K-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Abrahams: {J-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

Walsh held the nut straight, but was an underdog to hold up against Abrahams wrap and flush draw. However, the {5-Spades} turn and {A-Spades} river were no help to Abrahams, locking up the double for Walsh.

Walsh's reaction to the massive double up? To calmly snack on his Planters bar.
