Massive Double for Gyorgyi Results in Wild Celebration

zedmaster84 • Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante
Krisztian Gyorgyi

Over on one of the outer tables, Dan Abouaf raised to 32,000 and was called by Federico Petruzzelli from one seat over and Krisztian Gyorgyi in the big blind. On a flop of {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{K-Spades}, action checked to Abouaf and he continued for 26,000. Petruzzelli called beore Gyorgyi check-raised to 140,000. That forced a fold from Abouaf while Petruzzelli called.

On the {2-Hearts} turn, Gyorgyi bet 200,000 with 427,000 behind and Petruzzelli moved all in, the Hungarian called.

Krisztian Gyorgyi: {K-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Federico Petruzzelli: {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

Gyorgyi was in need of help and required the board to pair or to hit a four. And he did so by spiking the {4-Hearts} on the river, to skyrocket out of his chair and run through half of the tournament room in wild celebration, screaming out his excitement in Hungarian. When he returned to the table and saw the cameras on him, he continued to shout in his native language while slowly someone in the room started clapping. Gyorgyi turned around and started clapping himself, and most of the room joined in.
