Marc Macdonnell checked the Jd river to his opponent, Ankit Ahuja, in an already sizeable pot.
The full board read 6h 8d 7c, Ks, Jd.
Ahuja had but a moment’s hesitation, before cutting out a massive stack of yellow 5k chips (8 or so to our count, so 40k, nearly a starting stack’s worth). He nonchalantly tossed them over the line.
Macdonnell had that look about him of a pro with a strong hand that had been rendered, through circumstances of bet and raise, a mere bluff catcher. But he made the call with his set of sixes.
Ahuja had turned 8c 9c into a bluff. He was running on fumes thereafter and shortly made a graceful exit.
