will_shill • Level 42: Blinds 1,500,000-3,000,000, 3,000,000 ante

Hand #165: Matija Dobric jammed out of the small blind for 38,600,000 with {j-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and chip leader Michael Duek in the big blind asked for an exact count with {q-Spades}{4-Diamonds}. No call followed and the pot was pushed to the Croatian, which was lauded by his rail with "Matija, Matija" chants.

Hand #166: Espen Jorstad opened the action with a raise to 6,000,000 with {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} and Dobric jammed again, this time for 44,600,000 on the button with {k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}. While staring towards the other end of the table behind his sunglasses, Jorstad needed around a minute before he sent the cards into the muck.

Hand #167: Dobric min-raised to 6,000,000 in the cutoff with {a-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and was called by John Eames in the small blind with {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. The {k-Spades}{q-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop was checked by Eames and Dobric made it 4,000,000 to go. No call by Eames followed thereafter and Dobric collected the third pot in a row.
