Hand #185: Huge River Bet from Sylvia

[user101598] • Level 38: 400,000-800,000, 100,000 ante
Jesse Sylvia delivers a fist pump for his supporters after winning a big pot.

Jake Balsiger had the button, and raised to 1.6 million. Jesse Sylvia defended his big blind, and the dealer fanned {4-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Sylvia checked, Balsiger tossed out 2 million, and Sylvia tanked for a minute before check-raising to 5.6 million. Balsiger tank-called.

The turn was the {5-Clubs}, the crowed "oooooohhhhhh'ed," and Sylvia checked. Balsiger slid out 6 million in red T500,000 chips, and Sylvia called.

The {2-Diamonds} completed the board. Sylvia sat for a few minutes, then fired 10.2 million. The crowd went wild at the site of the eight-figure bet.

Balsiger tanked for less than a minute, then folded.
