Polychronopoulos Scores Huge Double Knockout

[user253757] • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Athanasios Polychronopoulos has just eclipsed the 1 million chip mark, while eliminating two dangerous opponents in the process.

We missed the first few preflop bets, but heard Joe Kuether announce himself all-in for his last 375,000, moving over the top of an all-in made by fellow pro Matt Matros.

Polychronopoulos asked for a count, and upon hearing the amount he casually announced a call, turning over {A-Spades}{k-Diamonds}. Kuether tabled the {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts} and found himself dominated, as did Matros with his {A-}{Q-}.

Both players were hoping for paint to splash on board, but the case ace arrived in its stead on the {9-Spades}{a-Hearts}{6-Spades} flop. Two baby cards later, and both Matros and Kuether hit the rail, while Polychronopoulos started to assemble his new chip castle.
