Yevgeniy Timoshenko opened to 320,000, and Jake Cody put him all in for 2.308 million. Timoshenko called, and he was at risk for his tournament life.
"It's like kissing your sister" someone in the commentary box said. He was unaware of the drama that would follow.
The flop came out , and the Brits in the crowd let out a collective, "Oooooh!" as their man had picked up the ol' backdoor flush draw. You can just imagine the noise on the turn, then, Cody just one club away from the bracelet. The spectators leaned in toward the stage, elbow-to-elbow, and they let out another rising, "Ooooooooh" in anticipation of the river card.
"Awwwwww," everyone on this side of the arena yelled. It was a split pot, and Cody doesn't have that bracelet just yet. Timoshenko let out a wry smile as he pulled his chips back into his stack.
