  • Ever have aces cracked twice? Chances are it wasn't in as big of a spot as it was for Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov.

Every poker player has been in a situation where they have had their aces cracked in a big spot in an all-in preflop hand. Not too many say they lost with the best hand of poker twice in a single hand.

Unfortunately for him, Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov found himself in just that spot. In a heads-up match, Kuznetsov called a five-bet shove from Jonas "OtB_RedBaron" Mols to create a week-high pot of $157,426 and the duo agreed to run it twice.

Despite Kuznetsov had 82 percent equity to win the first board and even more on the second board, his aces were cracked twice to hand a huge pot over to Mols.

One pot often doesn't dictate who the top performers were of the week. Such was the case this week with Kuznetsov booking a profit despite this huge setback and Mols booking one of the biggest overall losses for the week.


Catching Up on High Stakes Action: Three Biggest Pots of The Week

The action last week was huge with players battling it out at stakes high as $200/$400 no-limit hold'em and $100/$200 PLO. Kuznetsov and Mols were involved in the two biggest hands of the week.

1) Jonas "OtB_RedBaron" Mols wins a $157,426 Pot (394 Big Blinds) from Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov (March 12)
($200/$400 NLHE 6-Max)

The biggest hand of the week took place in heads-up play and began with Mols limping the button for $400. From there a series of a raises occurred with Kuznetsov bumping the action to $3,200, Mols three-betting to $9,800, Kuznetsov four-betting to $26,600 and Mols five-bet jamming $78,713.

Kuznetsov, who had his opponent well covered in no small thanks to winning the second biggest pot of the week 10 minutes prior, called.

($200/$400 NLHE 6-Max)

Just before the biggest hand of the week took place, the second biggest hand occurred between the same two players with a much different result.

Kuznetsov opened from the button to $900 before he called Mols' three-bet to $3,720 from the big blind.

The {9-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} flop generated tons of action. Mols opened for $2,008, Kuznetsov raised to $7,200, Mols three-bet to $15,200, Kuznetsov four-bet to $32,600, and Mols called leaving $37,133 remaining in his stack.

Both players opted to check after the {3-Hearts} appeared on the turn. Mols checked again when the {10-Diamonds} completed the board on the river. Kuznetsov then bet and Mols stacked off the rest of his chips after he called to hand a huge pot worth $136,501.
