Miracle Survival for Kolonias

mnuwwarah • Level 32: 70,000-140,000, 17,500 ante
Alexandros Kolonias

Stevan "Steve Austin" Chew opened for 280,000 in the hijack and was called by Julian Stuer on his left. Alexandros Kolonias called off his last 24K in the big blind.

On the {8-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades}, Chew check-called 252,000. The turn was a {7-Spades} and Chew checked again. Stuer bet big this time with 939,702. Chew again peeled, bringing an {8-Diamonds}. Stuer fired a final shell worth 2,126,993 into the side pot, and Chew quickly folded.

Kolonias likely figured he had zero shot of survival as he showed {j-Spades}{2-Hearts} but his hand was, amazingly good. Stuer held {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and scooped the larger side pot with his bluff.
