Stropoli Drags A Monster Pot from Eckert

KaleGozer • Level 19: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Julien Stropoli

In the biggest pot of the tournament, Jan Eckert clashed massively with Julien Stropoli. Eckert was in the small blind and Stropoli played from the cutoff.

There was already a substantial pot brewing between the two when action was on Eckert on a {7-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{A-Clubs} board. The Dane bet 210,000 and the Frenchman called in position.

On the {2-Diamonds} river, Eckert settled on a bet of 250,000. Needing about five seconds, Stropoli went all in for 685,000 and Eckert slumped back in his chair. He sighed, double-checked his hole cards, then gave it up after about twenty seconds.
