  • Level 23 (12000/24000/24000)
  • Players Remaining: 8

What started as a fairly standard size pot quickly escalated to a monster flop for Thai Ha and Filippos Stavrakis.  Stavrakis opened to 55k pre flop and Ha raised to 160k and just a call from Stavrakis.

Flop: 9♠9♣8♣ Stavrakis checks and Ha leads out for 150k and Stavrakis goes all in, and Ha calls.

Ha: A♥9♦ 

Stavrakis: J♣10♣ (open ended straight flush draw, and just under 43% to win the hand)

Turn: 9♥ gives Ha quad 9’s, however Stavrakis still has 2 outs to give him a straight flush, but the K♦ on the river gives him no help and is taken out 9th for $7881.
