Event #36: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em

It's Miller Time!

[user66118] • Level 20: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

We caught up with the action on the flop as the board showed {2-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds} {4-Clubs}. Franciscus Dekkers either bet or raised 60,000 stacking out that many chips just as we approached. His opponent was the chip leader Thomas Miller, and Miller shoved all in over the top. It was a big effective raise as Dekker still had about 400,000 chips back. He spent a long while agonizing in the tank before he called it off for his tournament life. He was wrong.

Dekkers: {Q-Hearts} {10-Hearts}
Miller: {K-Clubs} {K-Spades}

Miller's overpair had him poised for a monster pot, and the turn {4-Spades} and river {4-Hearts} secured the knockout. With it comes a huge chip boost to at least 1.3 million. We couldn't get a better count than that, because he was still stacking up when he eliminated the short stack at his table on the very next hand.
