Fortunes Turned as Albertsen Wins Biggest Pot of the Tournament

Jaxon • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 30,000 ante
Mats Albertsen

Mathias Siljander went from having the biggest stack to the shortest in a matter of minutes. He seemed to make a correct call in a huge pot but fate was not on his side.

Siljander opened to 150,000 with {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} from the small blind before he called a three-bet to 420,000 from Mats Albertsen with {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

Albertsen check-called a bet of 400,000 after the {5-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{q-Diamonds} came on the flop.

Siljander bet 1,200,000 after the {10-Diamonds} came on the turn. Albertsen opted to jam his 4,400,000 stack. Siljander went into the tank before he made the call.

The {J-Diamonds} completed the board on the river to give Albertsen a straight. Not only did the straight save his tournament life but it also pushed him into the chip lead with 10,000,000 in chips.

Meanwhile, Siljander was in third place after the hand with 2,300,000 in chips.
