MrCleverFox • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Yevgeniy Timoshenko

Yevgeniy Timoshenko opened the pot from the hijack seat with a raise to 17,000. Vimy Ha flatted from the big blind.

The flop came down {10-Clubs}{5-Spades}{3-Clubs} and Ha led out with a bet of 13,000. Timoshenko called.

The turn card was the {8-Clubs} and here's where things got crazy. Ha led again with a bet of 23,000. Timoshenko took his time to cut out a raise to 65,000. Action was back on Ha and he put in a reraise to 130,000. Timoshenko thought for about a minute and a half before putting in the chips for a call.

The river fell the {5-Diamonds} and Ha put out a bet of 200,000. Timoshenko went deep into the tank. He cut out two stacks of 20 T5,000 orange chips and put them in front of him. He motioned like he was going to put them in the pot, took his hands off, then he put his hands back and pushed the chips out for a call.

Ha showed {K-Clubs}{J-} for king high, but Timoshenko had made the right call with {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades} for a pair of tens with the pair of fives on the board. With that, the giant pot was pushed to Timoshenko and he moved over to 900,000 in chips.
