Brad Ruben

Big O

Brad Ruben opened from the button before Marco Johnson announced, "pot," from the small blind for a bet of 225,000. Ruben thought for a bit and made the call in position.

The flop brought {j-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}. Johnson quickly said pot, and Johnson slid all his chips into the middle. Both players were quickly all in and hands were revealed.

Marco Johnson: {j-Hearts}{a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{4-Hearts}
Brad Ruben: {a-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

"Diamonds are live," said Ruben.

They both had the ace-four low, Ruben had an open-ended straight draw and flush draw. The turn and river didn't complete either of those draws, but they did bring the oft-forgotten backdoor trips when the {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} showed up.

"Let's go!" shouted Ruben as he cheered with his rail and chipped up by quartering his opponent.
