Extra Life for Rivkin

  • Big Stax XXVI 300 8:40 PM
  • Level 23 (12000/24000/24000)
  • Players Remaining: 78

Nikita Marin from the hijack opens to 50k, SB and Jason Rivkin in the BB calls.

Flop: 9♦2♦3♣ Marin leads for 75k, Sb calls and Rivkin raises to 195k with about 120k behind.  Marin places 2 stacks of yellow (about 1 mil) over the line and announces he has a set, thinking Rivkin is all in.  Even in light of this, Rivkin tanks for a few minutes before folding.  Marin shows his 3♥3♦ and takes down the pot.
