Heads-up to the {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{7-Spades}{2-Diamonds} turn, Alan Sabo checked out of the small blind and Omar Eljach bet the pot for 125,000. Sabo then moved all-in and Eljach immediately sighed. "I guess it is for the glory. How can I fold this hand?" more to himself more than his opponent.

He gave it another 30 seconds to mull over the decision and called with a near identical big stack by using the words "no gamble no future."

Omar Eljach: {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Alan Sabo: {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}{k-Spades}{10-Clubs}

Eljach was calling for a diamond while Sabo demanded a spade. It was Sabo who got the wish granted on the {9-Spades} river and Eljjach's 498,000 were covered by fewer than one big blind.
