Smirnov Swings Back

Mikhail Smirnov

From the button, Dan Smith limped in. Mikhail Smirnov raised to 69,000 from the big blind and then Smith came back with a reraise to 154,000. Smirnov called and off to the flop they went.

The flop produced the very connected {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Spades} and both players checked to see the {10-Hearts} get added on the turn. Here, Smirnov bet 125,000. Smith took all the allotted time he had and then made the call at the last possible second.

The river completed the board with the {4-Diamonds} and both players quickly checked.

Smirnov tabled two pair with the {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and Smith mucked his hand.
