You may have already seen that PokerNews’ live reporting team is bringing you a blow-by-blow account of the $102,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl Online at partypoker on June 1-2.
This $3 million guaranteed affair is going to be nothing short of amazing, probably even more amazing than the bluff that helped Timothy Adams on his way to victory in one of the last live Super High Roller Bowl that took place.
Let’s set the scene for you. Super High Roller Bowl Sochi had reached Day 2 and 40-players had ponied up $250,000 for the chance to become the tournament’s champion and for the opportunity to win the $3.6 million top prize.
Adams Empties The Clip With Queen-High!
The fifth hand of the day was one of the most spectacular of the entire event. It started simply enough with the action folding to Team partypoker’s Jason Koon who looked down at and raised to 12,000. Adams three-bet to 40,000 with and Koon tossed in the calling chips.
After burning a card, the dealer fanned the flop, which Adams led out for 50,000 on. Koon called with his pair of fives. The turn saw similar action, except Adams increased his bet to 125,000. The river was the , completely missing Adams. That didn’t stop him emptying the clip with a triple-barrel all-in bluff for 176,000 chips!
Koon went deep into the tank, so deep he had to use a 30-second timebank extension to come to his decision.
“It’s really easy to just have king of clubs, queen, man,” said Koon as he pondered what to do next. As his timebank extension ran down, Koon said, “I’ll leave it up to the gods,” and folded.
Adams won the substantial pot with nothing but queen-high, while Koon folded the best hand. The hand catapulted Adams to 616,000 chips and from her there was no lucking back.
Koon busted before the end of Day 2 but Adams went all the way and became the Super High Roller Bowl Sochi champion. He defeated Christoph Vogelsang heads-up to secure the title and a cool $3.6 million.
