A behemoth of a pot just went down between Brett Hartfiel and Shankar Pillai.
We came in on the river and the board read . Before the river it looked as though there were already a ton of chips in the pot, but it didn't stop there.
Pillai checked (and according to him after the hand, he had check called every street), and Hartfiel bet 32,000. Pillai tanked for a couple minutes then decided to go all in for a total of 176,000. Hartfiel almost seemed like he was going to fold at one point and said, "You have Ace four don't you...." Pillai was quiet and eventually Hartifel called.
Hartfiel turned over for Aces full of threes, but Pillai had him beat with for Aces full of nines. Hartifel was understandably bummed but said he just couldn't get away from it.
Pillai is up to 480,000 and is our new chip leader
