Shylko & Magnus Get Three-Outed Before Two-Outing Menzel
Aliaksandr Shylko was in the hijack and opened to 200,000 for his third consecutive preflop raise and Nadya Magnus three-bet jammed a stack of 1,400,000 from the button. Table chip leader Max Menzel then re-shoved a bigger stack from the small blind and Shylko took off his sunglasses before calling.
Magnus and Shylko were in good shape to chop the pot and Shylko closed his eyes as he awaited the runout. The Belarusian looked completely defeated when the flop landed to give Menzel a commanding lead, but his demeanor quickly changed when the peeled off on the turn to miraculously improve his and Magnus' hands.
The river completed the board and Magnus and Shylko both stayed alive.
"I think there's a little brown speck on the back of your pants," Dylan Destefano joked to Shylko.
