Butler Spikes an Out to Survive with a Quarter

[user249920] • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante
Ashly Butler nearly lost his stack.

Ashly Butler had reraised before the flop from the big blind, and Vladimir Shchmelev called from the button. Butler fired out 250,000 on the {3-Spades}{2-Clubs}{5-Hearts} flop, and he was again called. The turn was a {3-Hearts}, and Butler moved all in. Shchmelev was in there instantly, and he was in fantastic shape.

Shchmelev: {a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Butler: {a-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

Butler was dead to a quartering, as Shchmelev had a full house for high and the nuts for low. Miraculously, the {4-Diamonds} hit the river, and Butler's remains in contention, though he had to ship 580,000 more over to his opponent.
