Days:

Shimelfarb into Seven Figures

[user249920] • Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

With the board reading {8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs} on fourth street, Gennady Shimelfarb checked out of the big blind. Maurice Hawkins did likewise in middle position, and a player in the hijack bet 110,000. Shimelfarb called and Hawkins folded. A {j-Diamonds} hit the river and Shimelfarb thought for a minute before sliding forward all of his red T5000 chips: 275,000. The hijack quickly folded and Shimelfarb dragged the huge pot to pass the 1 million-mark.
