"Ok, Let's Get This Over With!"

Webjoker • Niveau 33: 300,000-600,000, 100,000 ante

Ravi Raghavan opened the action with a raise to 1.4 million and big blind Marcus Laffen called. Laffen check-called a bet of 1 million on {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{A-Hearts} before they both checked the {Q-Clubs} on the turn.

The {K-Diamonds} completed the board and Laffen checked.

"Ok, let's get this over with!" Raghavan said with a big sigh as he moved in. Laffen called and moved his chips back instantly as the two were both well aware they were going to chop the pot with Broadway on board.

Laffen showed {A-Spades}{9-Hearts} and Raghavan smashed {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} on the table with some frustration. That frustration was soon gone as Raghavan showed a big smile seconds later. "We were always going to chop it," he said.
