Ilari FIN's record pot, which ended up being a bit north of $420,000, came during a six-handed $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha game that also featured the likes of Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond and Rafi Amit.

The record pot involved "Ilari FIN", "bernard-bb" and "Skjervoy". Prior to the hand taking place, "Ilari FIN" had $247,909 in his stack, "bernard-bb" had $195,609 and "Skjervoy" had $30,208.

There was $4,600 in the pot when the flop came:


"bernard-bb" checked, "Ilari FIN" bet $4,595, "Skjervoy" raised to $18,380, and both "Ilari FIN" and "bernard-bb" elected to make the call.

There was $59,740 in the pot when the turn card brought the 9h.

"bernard-bb" checked, "Ilari FIN" checked, "Skjervoy" pushed all-in for his remaining $10,428, "bernard-bb" raised to $91,019 and "Ilari FIN" called.

There was $252,206 in the middle when the river card brought the 3h.

"bernard-bb" bet the rest of his stack ($84,810) and "Ilari FIN" snap-called.
