Hammer No Good? Impossible!

Yevgeniy Timoshenko disbelieved the power of the hammer, and was rewarded for his faith by winning the pot. He raised to 6,100 from the button. Action folded to Bruce Parker in the big blind, who reraised all in for about 23,000. Timoshenko called and tabled {A-Diamonds} {10-Hearts}. Parker showed The Hammer -- {7-Hearts} {2-Clubs}.

Parker's two live cards took the lead on a flop of {8-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds}, but he had a bushel of cards he had to duck by the river, lest Timoshenko overtake him. Parker couldn't do it when the {4-Diamonds} hit the turn to make Timoshenko the nut flush. The river {7-Clubs} added insult to injury.

Timoshenko now has 210,000 to extend his chip lead.
