Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Serafimov Celebrates

Sergey Serafimov opened for 3,500 in early position and the player on the button reraised to 9,500. The player in the small blind flat-called, and it was back on Serafimov, who went all in. The button re-shoved, the small blind folded (he later claimed that he had folded pocket kings) and they were on their backs.

Serafimov: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}
Button gentleman: {q-}{q-}

Flop: {10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{q-Hearts} - uh oh...

Turn: {k-Clubs} - we can only imagine that the guy who folded kings kicked himself, very briefly...

River: wait for it...

...

... {j-Spades}!

Serafimov rivered a Broadway straight to stay in the game, and he went a bits nuts in the aisle with the shouting and the running around. He was issued with a one round penalty for excessive celebration, but when he returns it will be to a very healthy 160,000 stack.
