Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Another Big One

Happy_Freaked • Level 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Another big stack has emerged in the Brasilia room, and he goes by the name Hans Joachim Hein.

The German player cashed in the World Series of Poker Main Event both in 2009 and 2010, and that shows he has plenty of experience in the biggest tournament of the year.

On a {5-Hearts}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{A-Spades} board Hein put his 164.300 remaining chips at risk, and his opponent showed {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}. Hein had his opponent drawing dead with {6-Diamonds}{6-Spades}, but nevertheless he celebrated when the {Q-Diamonds} hit.

The player who lost this pot was eliminated shortly after this hand, and Hein is now among the tournament chip leaders with 400.000 chips.
