Huge Pot Goes Gieles' Way

YorkshirePud • Level 15: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Luuk Gieles

Some hands define the outcomes of poker tournaments and we may have witnessed one just now.

Luuk Gieles raised to 60,000 from under the gun, and Dzmitry Urbanovich three-bet to 156,000 from the next seat along at their five-handed table. Gieles called, and it was heads-up to the {8-Clubs}{9-Spades}{7-Hearts} flop. Gieles checked and Urbanovich checked behind.

Gieles led for 255,000 on the {4-Diamonds} turn and Urbanovich called to create an ever-growing pot. The river was the {2-Diamonds} and Gieles counted out 150,000 chips, but left those behind and bet the rest of his stack, a bet of 795,000. Urbanovich looked shaken by this and shook his head, took a drink of his water, and then stared into space before tossing in a solitary 1,000 chip to signal a call.

It was the {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts} of Gieles that won the pot, a hand that Urbanovich couldn't beat as evident by him mucking his hand. With that, Gieles is up to 2,650,000 million chips while Urbanovich drops to 1,130,000.
