ajlamers • Level 41: 1,000,000-2,000,000, 2,000,000 ante
Ben Sarnoff

Eric Smidinger raised to 4,000,000 on the button and Ben Sarnoff shoved all in for around 27,000,000 from the big blind. Smidinger instantly flicked in a chip to call and the cards were on their backs.

Ben Sarnoff: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Eric Smidinger: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}

They were off to the races and Smidinger was looking to hold to capture the title. The flop came {q-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} and Sarnoff was unable to connect as of yet. The {7-Hearts} on the turn changed nothing and it was the {j-Diamonds} that bricked on the river.

"Yeah, baby!" Smidinger shouted as he got up from his seat. The two players shook hands and Sarnoff was off to the payout desk to collect his runner-up prize.
