Hand #206: Raina Wins the Last Hand Before the Break

Jan_Kores • Niveau 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Hand #206: There were two minutes left in the level and the tournament supervisor informed players about an upcoming break. "Thank god, I'm so tired," said James Calvo in relief. Then the last hand before the break started as Gaurav Raina made it 320,000 to go and Calvo accepted.

Calvo checked on the {2-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{5-Hearts}, letting Raina fire a 300,000 continuation bet. Calvo then cut out a pile of the most valuable chips and check-raised to 900,000. Raina called.

The turn {5-Clubs} and river {8-Clubs} were checked through and Calvo revealed his {J-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} for air on the flop and rivered pair. Raina had flopped a ten, and the eight also hit him. Despite four clubs on the board, Raina's {10-Spades}{8-Hearts} for two pairs was good and he regained the lead before they headed for a 15-minute break.
