Event #32: $10,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Sunny Gets Aggressive

• Taso 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Hiren "Sunny" Patel

Dario Sammartino raised to 18,000 in the cutoff, Hiren "Sunny" Patel called out of the small blind, and the flop fell {5-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}. Patel checked, Sammartino continued for 20,000, and Patel check-raised to 56,000. The Italian tank-called.

The turn was the {6-Diamonds}, Patel led out for 82,000, and Sammartino called.

The river was a third spade - the {j-Spades} - and Patel reached for chips. He took five green T25,000 chips, topped that off with a single yellow T1,000 chip, and placed that small pile on a tower of pink T5,000 chips. He pushed out the 226,000-chip bet, and Sammartino let out a loud sigh.

The Italian checked his cards one last time then finally folded, and Patel slid his cards into the muck.
