ajlamers • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante
Alexander Orlov

Rick Troendly raised to 125,000 on the button and Alexander Orlov called from the big blind. The dealer fanned the flop of {9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Spades} and Orlov started with a check. Troendly fired out a bet of 115,000 and Orlov check-raised to 325,000. Troendly got up from his seat as he pushed all in and Orlov called off his stack of around 1,775,000.

Rick Troendly: {a-Spades}{4-Spades}
Alexander Orlov: {9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Orlov was currently in the lead with a pair of nines but Troendly had plenty of outs with a straight and flush draw. The {k-Spades} landed on the turn to give Troendly a flush and Orlov was left drawing dead to the {6-Hearts} on the river. Troendly will now carry a huge chip lead into heads-up action.
