Matija Dobric

Hand #168: Matija Dobric raised to 6,000,000 as the first player to act and Espen Jorstad took the better part of two minutes before three-betting to 21,000,000 in the small blind. The four-bet shove of Dobric came within a minute, and Jorstad asked for an exact count before he made the call.

Both sides of the rail went on their feet as the cards were revealed.

Matija Dobric: {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Espen Jorstad: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}

The {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{7-Clubs} flop propelled Jorstad into the lead and that didn't change on the {10-Diamonds} turn either. Another blank followed on the {8-Clubs} river and that sent Dobric to the rail in fifth place while Jorstad soared to the top of the leaderboard.

Dobric's rail kept chanting the first name of the Croatian for several moments before their favorite headed to the bustout interview.
