John Richards

Evangelos Kokkalis raised to 250,000 in the cutoff and John Richards three-bet to 850,000 from the small blind. Kokkilas four-bet shoved all in and Richards called the extra 370,000 to put himself at risk.

Evangelos Kokkalis: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
John Richards: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades}

The flop fell {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} to give Richards trip sevens and a stranglehold on the hand. The {9-Spades} on the turn changed nothing and Kokkilas was drawing to just two outs. The river was the {7-Diamonds} to give Richards quads and a full double up.
