Dypvik Gets There

Borge Dypvik

When we picked up the action, the {9-Spades} {2-Spades} {10-Hearts} flop was already out on board in a heads-up pot between Borge Dypvik and Vadim Markushevski. The latter had put out a bet of 25,000 there, and Dypvik had check-raised all in for 156,500. That was just 15,000 less than Markushevski had total, so the decision was essentially for his tournament life. It was a long, long while before he finally made the call, and Dypvik sunk in his chair. "That's not good for me," he admitted, tabling his draw.

Dypvik: {7-Clubs} {8-Clubs}
Markushevski: {A-Hearts} {10-Clubs}

The {7-Hearts} on the turn opened up another few outs for Dypvik, but he'd go ahead and make his straight regardless. The {6-Spades} was the river, and Markushevski could only shake his head. "Nice call, at least," Dypvik offered. It seemed of little consolation.

Markushevski has headed off to break with just those 15,000 chips in front of his seat.
