Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Makiievskyi Wins Massive 20MM-Chip Pot!

Anton Makiievskyi is up of 20 million in chips.

From early position, Ahtoh Makiievskyi raised to 400,000. Christopher Moore called from middle position and the flop came down {K-Spades}{J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}. According to the action on the ESPN production monitor we have in front of us, on the flop Makiievskyi fired a continuation bet of 400,000 before Moore raised to 1.1 million. Makiievskyi came back with a reraise to 2.8 million. Moore then moved all in and Makiievskyi snapped to create the largest pot of the 2011 World Series of Poker.

Makiievskyi: {K-Diamonds}{J-Spades}
Moore: {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}

What a massive pot at 20.370 million in chips between a flopped full house and trip jacks, but Moore would need help on the turn or river in this one.

The turn brought the {6-Spades} and now Moore was left with just one more card, the river, to find an ace. The river landed with the {4-Hearts} and Makiievskyi went running over to his fans on the rail in celebration. He won the largest pot of the tournament at over 20 million while Moore was knocked way down to under two million.

PokerNews would like to note that on this hand, only half of the action was announced on the flop and the action given above was what we saw on the production monitor in front of us that displays every action by each player.
