Hand 83: Nick Schwarmann opened to 50,000 putting Justin Oliver under pressure to act. Oliver is up to the task and he re-raised to 115,000 in total. Schwarmann called and the flop was dealt {8-Spades}{2-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}. Oliver was first to act and he led for 115,000. Schwarrmann sat staring at the board before announcing he was all-in. Oliver snap-called and it soon became apparent why.

Schwarmann: {A-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} - for top pair with an ace-kicker.
Oliver: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs} - for the bullets!

No wonder Oliver called so fast; he had been dealt Hold'em's most premium of starting hands. The {2-Hearts} turn kept Oliver's aces in front and the {7-Clubs} river locked up the hand for him, leaving Schwarmann to hand over 436,000 of his stack to Oliver.
