Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Li Shove Benefits Morris ("What a Fantasy!")


Just as Level 9 was coming to a close, we came upon a huge hand developing between Greg Morris and Bjorn Li that saw the pair build a decent-sized pot by the {4-Clubs}{A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{3-Hearts} river and Morris pushing out a bet of 45,000 from the hijack seat.

Li responded with an all-in shove from the button and Morris instantly called, tabling {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} for the nut straight. Li had but {Q-Spades}{10-Spades} for tens, and after the chips were counted down it was confirmed that Morris had Li outchipped and the latter hit the rail.

After Li left, the table couldn't help but remark on the hand, with Ronnie Bardah correctly pointing out that Morris was now sitting with one of the leading stacks. He also couldn't help but congratulate him on having an opponent shove into him while he held the nuts.

"What a party! What a fantasy!" said Bardah, to which Morris responded that he'd seen Li not wanting to let go of hands earlier after having committed chips, and thus had been searching for a spot just like the one he'd found.
