Kolonias Back in Action

zedmaster84 • Level 31: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

Alexandru Papazian raised to 325,000 and Alexandros Kolonias called to see the flop come {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Kolonias check-called a bet worth 225,000 and did so again for 600,000 on the {J-Clubs} turn. The {A-Diamonds} river was checked through and Kolonias scooped the pot with {J-Hearts}{8-Clubs}.

Papazian scraped some chips back the hand after before raising to 325,000 and then folding to the shove of Kolonias worth 4.125 million.

After a raise to 325,000 and a call, the {A-Spades}{6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop saw Kolonias check-call a bet of 300,000 before checking through the {5-Clubs} turn and {J-Hearts} river. Papazian showed {3-Spades}{3-Hearts}, which ended up second-best to the {9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} of Kolonias.

Papazian Pulls Away

zedmaster84 • Level 30: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Alexandros Kolonias and Alexandru Papazian had previously split an ace-high board with four card straight, both held a queen to chop it up.

Now Kolonias raised to 325,000 and was called to see the flop {K-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}. Papazian immediately fired a bet worth 350,000 and received a call before making a second barrel for 900,000 on the {J-Clubs} turn. Kolonias called and then faced the third and final barrel of 1.3 million on the {K-Diamonds} river.

What followed was a period of around four minutes in the think tank and Kolonias then took off his sunglasses to stare at the opponent and the board. Papazian mostly stared at a fixed point near the community cards, but sometimes also stared back at Kolonias as well.

Two further minutes passed and Kolonias tossed in one chip for the call. Papazian rolled over {J-Spades}{9-Diamonds} and that won the pot to leave his opponent quite short.

Papazian Gets Paid Off

zedmaster84 • Level 30: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Back from the break, Alexandros Kolonias raised to 320,000 and called the three-bet worth 800,000 in total by Alexandru Papazian to see a flop of {A-Spades}{7-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. Papazian continued for 450,000 and was called before the {J-Hearts} turn triggered no betting action. The dealer burned and turned the {9-Diamonds} river and Papazian bet 850,000.

It took some time before Kolonias had made up his mind, but he eventually tossed in an obligatory chip for the call before mucking to the {K-Diamonds}{J-Spades} of Papazian.

From the rail came a "bravo", as Papazian was given support by EPT11 Deauville runner up and fellow Romanian Dany Parlafes.

Then, Kolonias made it 250,000 to go and Papazian three-bet to 725,000. Kolonias called to see the {Q-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop and a continuation bet worth 400,000 by his opponent. Kolonias called and did so again for 1.2 million on the {8-Hearts} turn. Both then checked the {A-Spades} river and Papazian showed {J-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} for an air, Kolonias claimed the pot with {6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}.

Big Check-Raise by Papazian

zedmaster84 • Level 29: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante

Alexandros Kolonias made it 250,000 to go and Alexandru Papazian defended his big blinf. On the {Q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop, Papazian check-called a bet worth 200,000 before the {3-Diamonds} turn was checked through. The {6-Clubs} river completed the board and Papazian checked.

Kolonias now bet 400,000 and then released his cards into the muck once Papazian had check-raised to 1.5 million.

Up And Down

zedmaster84 • Level 29: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante

One hand saw both players pick up pocket pairs, but they were under pairs to the board and thus no big pot emerged to see Alexandros Kolonias win it with fours versus deuces. Alexandru Papazian once again won the majority of middle-sized pots to claw back into the lead and then a bigger one.

Kolonias raised to 240,000 and picked up a call by Papazian to see the flop of {A-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts}. Papazian check-raised from 200,000 to 600,000 and was called before leading the {7-Clubs} turn for 800,000. Kolonias gave him the staredown but eventually folded.

Soon after a limped pot was checked down and Papazian bet the {K-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{8-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Spades} river for 125,000. Kolonias called with {7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for a back door straight and Papazian's {8-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} for two pair were no good.
