He sighed and he rolled his eyes a little bit as he saw he was in need of a lot of help with his as Yaroshevskyy showed .
The on the flop guaranteed O'Dwyer at least a sweat till the river as there was no card that could pop up on the turn that would leave him drawing dead. So the hope for the suck out on O'Dwyers parts was still alive after the hit the turn, but it vanished into thin air with the on the river. O'Dwyer paired up but it wasn't enough.

In one of the last hands before the break Martin Kabrhel opened to 2,000 and Dmitry Nemirovsky made the call in the cutoff. Steve O'Dwyer in the big blind came along for the ride and the flop came .
O'Dwyer checked, Kabrhel bet 3,000, Nemirovsky folded, O'Dwyer called. O'Dwyer check called another 8,000 on the turn and the fell on the river. O'Dwyer bet out 22,000 and now the big show started.
While O'Dwyer gave Kabrhel his famous death stare, Kabrhel started a monologue. "Flush?" he asked to a non answering O'Dwyer, "Flush?" Still no reply from O'Dwyer.
"Time table 18!" shouted the dealer. Not only O'Dwyer wasn't replying, no floor answered either. "Time table 18!"
"It's ok, no worry" said Kabrhel with a kind of serious face, "Yeah... Time table 18!" repeated the dealer.
"So Steve, you want a call or not?"
"Time table 18!"
"Be a man Steve, yes or no? Flush?"
In the meantime a floor finally had come over and had given Kabrhel the one minute countdown warning. "One? Really?" said Kabhrel with a not too serious tone of voice as he had been given the notice many times before in his long poker career. "But I need advice from Steve! So yes or no?"
O'Dwyer was listening, but wasn't saying a damn thing. "You don't speak with me? No? Why not? asked Kabrhel.
With just a few second to go Kabrhel made the call. O'Dwyer immediately tabled for the full house.
"I was asking you!" said Kabrhel with a smile. "I know," said O'Dwyer "but I just wanted to hear you talk."
"Nice call pre flop. I like it. Nice call pre flop" said a now somewhat bitter sounding Kabrhel. "That was the only reason I called, because I thought you fold that shit pre flop."
O'Dwyer just stacked the chips and left Kabrhel blaze it off a bit. The home town player stood up from the table and went for a little walk. O'Dwyer is up to about 170,000, Kabrhel still has well over 100,000 left.
