Pahuja Straightens Out Giesbrecht

[user153638] • Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

With around 50,000 in the pot and a flop of {q-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, a raising war between Vinny Pahuja and Sean Giesbrecht resulted in the former getting his stack of 334,000 in the middle.

Pahuja: {6-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Giesbrecht" {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

Pahuja decided to go with his open-ended straight draw, which he needed to hit to overcome the aces of Giesbrecht. The dealer burned and turned the {8-Hearts}, which was gin for Pahuja. Giesbrecht was clearly distraught and sent the vast majority of his stack over to Pahuja after the {2-Diamonds} was put out on the river.
