Kent Staahle came into this tournament as a bit of an unknown in the poker world, and especially to those with who he is sitting at the table. However, the Norwegian businessman is showing no fear when it comes to mixing it up with some of the best players in the world.

Timothy Adams made it 27,000 to go from the cutoff and was called by Staahle in the small blind and Christoph Vogelsang in the big blind. The flop fell {k-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Spades} and the action checked to Adams who bet 23,000. Staahle check-raised to 60,000 which got Vogelsang to fold but Adams called.

The turn was the {q-Clubs} and Staahle splashed in a bet of 100,000. Adams stuck around to see the {6-Hearts} on the river and Staahle announced all in. Adams deliberated for a brief moment but decided to pitch his cards to the muck.
