We said earlier that it was possible for some of the big stacks seated at Table 4 to collide, and it seems that the poker Gods have conjured up something special here in the third level of the day.
Linas Pugzlys opened to 35,000 from early position. It folded to the start-of-day chipleader Nandor Solyom in the small blind who three-bet to 126,000. Traian Bostan was in the big blind and he cold four-bet all-in for 1,321,000.
Pugzlys folded and Solyom, after some consideration, slammed chips down into the middle to indicate a call.
It was a cooler of monumental portions, and if either player won they would sore into the chiplead, but it was Bostan at risk.
The board ran out and Bostan doubled to 2.7 million in chips, with Solyom back to just over twenty big blinds.
|Nandor Csaba Solyom||380,000||-1,400,000|
