Metalidi Secures Big Double Against Galitskiy

AaronMcBride • Level 26: 200,000-400,000, 400,000 ante

The flop was down {q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and Mikhail Galitskiy bet 800,000 from the hijack after Artem Metalidi had checked in the big blind. With the action back on Metalidi he raised to 2,500,000 and Galitskiy called.

The turn brought the {10-Diamonds} and both players checked with the river card the {6-Clubs}. Metalidi proceeded to move all in for 8,500,000 and Galitskiy gave himself 30-seconds to think before he called.

Metalidi tabled {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a flush, and Galitskiy was made to show {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} for just a pair.

Metalidi, who came in 8th place at this year's WSOP Main Event, secured a huge double to 22,500,000 and Galitskiy was left with 13,000,000.
