Soheb Porbandarwala Shoves the River

Balakrishna Patur (pbkreddy) limps from the button/small blind for 5,000,000 with Diamond 10Diamond 8, and Soheb Porbandarwala (MyCousinVinny5) checks his option in the big blind with Diamond 7Heart 2.

The flop comes Heart 8Club 7Heart 3, and both players flop a pair. Porbandarwala checks, Patur bets 5.5 million, and Porbandarwala calls.

The turn card is the Heart A, and both players check.

The river card is the Club 9, and Patur’s pair of eights are ahead of Porbandarwala’s pair of sevens. Porbandarwala checks, Patur bets 11.0 million, and Porbandarwala check-raises all in for 305.4 million.

Patur thinks for about 20 seconds before he folds, and Porbandarwala takes the pot with the lower pair of sevens.

Soheb Porbandarwala  –  338.6 million  (68 bb)
Balakrishna Patur  –  56.4 million  (11 bb)

What Might Have Been: If Patur had called that shove on the river, he would have won the hand and doubled up to 99.7 million, good for 20 big blinds.
