Djingga Ships With Air and Gets Caught

[user75032]
We walked up to Steven Djingga's table with about 25,000 already in the pot. The betting was on the turn, with the board showing {2-Hearts} {3-Hearts} {Q-Clubs} {3-Diamonds}. Djingga shipped it all in, about 75,000 worth of chips. Taneli Tiikkaja, his lone opponent, shrugged and called.

Djingga: {A-Hearts} {5-Clubs}
Tiikkaja: {A-Clubs} {A-Spades}

Djingga had shipped with nothing but a gutshot draw and an overcard and got caught. He couldn't catch his miracle -- the river was the {6-Hearts}.

After Djingga had left the table, some other players laughed and shook their heads, commenting on the benefits and detriments of shipping it all in on the turn with only a gutshot draw.

Tiikkaja didn't stay for the conversation. He headed to the rail for a smoke and some food with a friend, leaving a floor person to stack his 210,000 chips.
