Event #67: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event World Championship

Shevlyakov Scores a Massive Pot

zedmaster84 • Level 3: 200-400, 400 ante

Susan Choi had already squeezed to 23,900 and then faced the all-in of Takahiro Kidokoro for 99,100 and the reshove of Aleksandr Shevlyakov. She was in the tank for a short while and folded, mentioning in table chat that there was no more ace left in the deck when the cards were turned over.

Takahiro Kidokoro: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Aleksandr Shevlyakov: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}

The board ran out {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{6-Spades} and Kidokoro was eliminated while Shevlyakov skyrocketed to the top of the leaderboard.

"I would have been sick to my stomach if I had called but really happy on the flop," Choi said and mentioned that she had folded ace-jack.
