Ken O’Donnel (left) and Richard Carr

Ken O’Donnell was out of position in the cutoff against Richard Carr on the button. They got 80,000 in on the turn when the board laid 7h6c4s3h.

The river fell the 7c and O’Donnell checked. Carr reached deep into his stack betting what looked like 150,000 — leaving him only about 100 behind. O’Donnell went into the tank shuffling his chips while pondering his options.

After some time, he plopped the chips in.

O’Donnell: Qc2c for queen-high
Carr: JhTh for jack-high (missed heart draw)

O’Donnell’s call was correct and the table littered him with, “Nice call,” accordingly.

Ken O’Donnell – 850,000
Richard Carr – 100,000
