Huang Burns Five Time Banks, Makes Correct Call

KaleGozer • Level 32: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante
Wei Huang

In the previous hand, Wei Huang raised to 400,000 from under the gun with {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Viktor Katzenberger had {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} on the button and three-bet to 1,050,000 with the blades. Both the blinds and Huang snap-folded.

The next hand, Nicola Grieco raised to 500,000 and Huang called out of the big blind. On the {9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} flop, Huang checked and Grieco instantly shoved it in, covering Huang's stack. It was 3,700,000 total for the Chinese if he was to call it off.

Huang burned through all of his five (!) time bank cards before calling it off for his tournament life.

Nicola Grieco: {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Wei Huang: {a-Hearts}{5-Spades}

Grieco revealed first and Huang slammed his hand open on the felt after seeing he was ahead. The {4-Spades} on the turn added extra outs for the Italian, but the {8-Diamonds} river was safe for Huang, who celebrated the double-up with Haoxiang Wang on the rail. Grieco gave the Chinese pair a death stare and added some words in Italian before sitting back down.
