Event 6 - €1,500 PNC Alpine Main Event

Hit in the Face by the Dekk-ers

Franciscus Dekkers
It looked as though Franciscus Dekkers had raised it up from the cut-off and been called by Vladislav Bakalov in the small blind. Either way, the two players reached the turn of a {7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} board where Bakalov's leading bet of 1,400 was raised to 3,400 by Dekkers. Bakalov called.

On the {Q-Spades} river, Bakalov checked, and Dekkers moved all in for 6,275.

As Bakalov procrastinated, I couldn't help but notice their opposing postures, Dekkers upright with his arms folded whilst Bakalov sat sideways in his chair, his hand riffling through his chips as if he didn't have a care in the world.

Well, he does now, because after asking for a count of the pot (10,400 - although I was under the impression the chips could only be spread), Bakalov made the call, only to be shown a triumphant {A-Hearts}{2-Spades}.

Bakalov is down to 11,500.
