After about 15 hands full of either walks, or simple raise and take the blinds, we just had a five minute hand that saw Jarred Graham score a huge double up. Here's ow it went down.
Jarred Graham raised to 80,000 from the button, and Marco Johnson called from the big blind. The flop came down , and Johnson check called a bet of 120,000 from Graham. The turn brought the , and both players checked. The fireworks were ready to go off when the hit the river.
Johnson thought for about 15 seconds before he announced pot, a bet of 420,000 total. It was on Graham, and he thought for about 30 seconds before he cut out the calling chips. Graham counted his chips out, grabbed them, then as it looked like he was going to just call, he announced "all in." Johnson immediately grimaced, and said "why didn't I just check?!" Johnson spent about three minutes in the tank, all the while speaking softly to himself, trying to figure out what Graham had. He said "it has to be the case something," meaning that he thought Graham had the last of the cards in the deck that could help him.
Eventually, he tossed in the call, and Graham showed: for aces full and a five-two low. Johnson let out a big sigh, then showed what many assumed he had: for the third nuts.
Johnson shipped all the chips over to Graham, who is now our chip leader with 2.5 million, while Johnson is crippled to just 400,000.
