Rajkumar Takes Two Hits

Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Vivek Rajkumar and JC Alvarado on the feature table

Vanessa Selbst opened to 22,000 from early position, and four players called including Vivek Rajkumar (middle position), Scott Seiver (hijack seat), Phil Ivey (button), and David "Doc" Sands (big blind).

The flop fell {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, and the action checked to Rajkumar who fired 75,000. Only Seiver called. The turn was the {10-Hearts}, Rajkumar checked, and Seiver tossed out 175,000. Rajkumar tank-called.

The river was a third heart - the {7-Hearts} - and Rajkumar checked again. Seiver cut out 375,000, then tossed it forward. Rajkumar instantly folded, later claiming that he knew that Seiver had hearts.

A few hands later, Sands opened to 27,000 in the cutoff. Rajkumar three-bet to 90,000 from the big blind, Sands four-bet to 157,000, and Rajkumar moved all in for effectively 515,000.

Sands instantly called.

Sands: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Rajkumar: {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

The board ran out {6-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Hearts}{j-Clubs}, and Sands doubled to over one million chips. Rajkumar now has only 250,000.
