Happy_Freaked • Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
John Juanda

Hand #1: Victor Bogdanov raised to 200,000 under the gun and he picked up the blinds and antes.

Hand #2: John Juanda raised under the gun to 200,000 and Amir Touma called from the cutoff, even though he put in more chips. Touma didn't put in enough to raise, and it was ruled a called. Bogdanov called as well, and the flop brought out {7-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}.

The action was checked around and on the turn it got checked to Touma who bet 300,000 and Bogdanov called. Juanda went into the tank for a while before check-raising to 1,050,000. Touma took quite a bit of time, but eventually he slid forward enough green chips to make the call. Bogdanov folded, and two players went to the river.

With 3.14 million in the pot, the river brought the {4-Spades}. Juanda was first to act with 4.86 million left behind, and he was covered by Touma with 5.58 million. Juanda put together a bet of 1.85 million. The number 10 on the all-time live tournament money list pushed the chips forward, and Touma went into the tank.

Touma put aside the chips to make the call, but after six minutes he ultimately folded his cards.
