Event #65: $1,000 Mini Main Event

Miyashita Strikes First

dsalituro • Level 41: 1,300,000-2,500,000, 2,500,000 ante

Wataru Miyashita raised to 5,100,000 from the button and Georgios Sotiropoulos defended his big blind. Both players checked the {3-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{6-Spades} flop.

Sotiropoulos checked again on the {5-Diamonds} turn and Miyashita bet 5,500,000. Sotiropoulos called and the {9-Spades} river was checked down.

Sotiropoulos turned over {a-Hearts}{7-Spades} for a missed straight draw, while Miyashita had {k-Hearts}{5-Spades} for a pair of fives to win the first significant pot of heads-up play.
