John Juands has bought into the €50,000 Super High Roller only a couple of minutes before the break. Perhaps he wishes he'd waited until after the break to enter because he lost the first pot he played.
Juanda opened to 3,000 from middle position, Vladimir Troyanovskiy called from the next seat along, and it was heads-up to the flop. Juanda checked and Troyanovskiy checked behind.
The turn brought the into play and Juanda bet 4,200. Troyanovskiy called. Juanda bet again, this time 10,000 on the river, but it wasn't enough to shake Troyanovskiy off his tail because he called.
Juanda turned over and lost to Troyanovskiy's superior .
While that hand was going down, Alex Bilokur took his seat at the next table across.
