When we walked up to the table, Andrey Zaichenko had 6,700 chips out in front of him in middle position (a four-bet?), and the gentleman in the big blind had moved all in for 45,200 total. Zaichenko took a good soak in the tank, then made the call for a bit more than half his stack.

Zaichenko: {9-Hearts} {9-Diamonds}
Opponent: {K-Clubs} {K-Spades}

Any fool knows you always bet on red. The flop came out {9-Clubs} {8-Hearts} {2-Diamonds}, and Mr. Opponent shot out of his chair and pounded a fist on the felt in frustration. He was standing behind his chair, shaking his head and looking pretty grumpy as the blank {10-Hearts} turned.

River: {K-Diamonds}

Mr. Opponent clutched his hands over his mouth in silent disbelief, and now it was Zaichenko with a pound of the fist. He was less than thrilled about the re-suck, and paying off his debt drops him back around 40,000.
