Oliver Wins 2 Million-Chip Pot, Eliminates Kaczka

SantanaBandana • Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 1,000 ante
Harry Kaczka - eliminated in brutal fashion.

Before the break, Chris Oliver started things off with a raise to 23,000 from middle position and the action folded to Harry Kaczka who three-bet to 65,000 from the blinds. Oliver thought for a bit before four-betting to 112,000 and Kaczka responded with a five-bet to 255,000.

Then things got crazy.

Oliver six-bet shoved for effectively 1.2 million and Kaczka snapped it off making this the biggest hand of the tournament. The hands?

Oliver: {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Kaczka: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

"Just a two million-chip pot," Kaczka said irritably at the sight of Oliver's hand.

With mountains of chips in the middle and a crowd of spectators gathering, the dealer rapped the table, burned a card and delivered the flop.


The spectators exploded. Kaczka was now a heavy underdog to win the hand and looked disgusted. Neither the {j-Diamonds} on the turn nor the {6-Hearts} could save Kaczka and he smacked his chips all over the table before storming out of the ballroom. Tournament officials tried to track Kaczka down to pay him for finishing 88th, but he was long gone.

Oliver couldn't hold back a devilish grin as he raked in his newfound chips and he is now sitting on a massive, 2.28 million-chip stack.
