Ruthenberg Crippled by Jachtmann

Josh_Cahlik • Level 5: 150-300, 25 ante
Sebastian Ruthenberg Crippled

Jan-Peter Jachtmann opened the action with a raise to 800 from early position. A few seats later Gintaras Simaitis announced a three-bet all in for 5,525 total. It folded to Sebastian Ruthenberg in the small blind who took a moment before announcing a flat call.

Action was back on Jachtmann and he announced a four-bet all in over the top for 15,750 total. Ruthenberg called and the hands were tabled.

Ruthenberg: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}
Jachtmann: {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}
Simaitis: {j-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}

Jachtmann was way out in the lead with his pocket aces and it looked like trouble for Ruthenberg and Simaitis. The flop brought {K-Spades}{4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and paired Ruthenberg's king.

"It's coming!" Ruthenberg said with a smile.

Unfortunately for the Team Pro, his prediction was incorrect, as the turn was the {Q-Diamonds} and the river the {10-Hearts}.

Jachtmann was able to knock out a player and double up in the process to about 42,000. Simaitis, on the other hand, hit the rail while Ruthenberg was crippled to only about 4,000.
