Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Jacks Good for Ponakovs

Level 24 : 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante

Catching the action on the flop of {10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} with roughly 400,000 in the middle, we found Alekseys Ponakovs checking to Rachid Ben Cherif who bet out 240,000.

Ponakovs called, and then both players checked down the {3-Spades} and {7-Diamonds} on the turn and river.

Ponakovs tabled his {J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} and Ben Cherif folded his hand to slip to 1.9 million as Ponakovs climbs to 3 million.
