Djingga Ships With Air and Gets Caught

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.
