Hand 29: Nanos Wins Pot Worth 75% of the Chips in Play

Webjoker • Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Konstantinos Nanos

Hand 29: Vladimir Krastev raised from the button to 65,000 and Thomas Bichon quickly folded his small blind. Konstantinos Nanos three-bet to 175,000 from the big blind and almost instantly Krastev four-bet to 390,000.

Nanos tanked for quite a while before five-betting to 875,000 with about 1.6 million left behind.

Krastev took his time, but eventually he announced "All in."

"Call," Nanos snapped, and he tabled {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}.

Krastev showed {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} and he was in a lot of trouble in this pot worth over five million chips/75% of the chips in play.

The flop brought {8-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Krastev was looking for running straight, flush or two-pair cards. On the turn the {4-Diamonds} hit and Krastev picked up a flush draw.

"Never easy," Bichon smiled, as Nanos was over on the rail trying to keep his composure.

The river brought the {Q-Hearts} and Nanos' pair of aces held up. The German celebrated loudly, kissed the WPT Champions trophy and sat back down to receive 2,480,000 chips from Krastev.
