connorrichards • Level 22: Blinds 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante
Yuliyan Kolev

Yuliyan Kolev opened to 55,000 in middle position and Carlos Loving three-bet to 125,000 on the button. Kolev four-bet jammed for 490,000 and Loving made the call.

Yuliyan Kolev: {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Carlos Loving: {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

"Hold!" Kolev yelled as the dealer fanned the flop of {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} to give Kolev a big lead with a set. The {j-Clubs} on the turn gave Loving outs to a straight but the {7-Hearts} bricked off on the river to secure the double-up for Kolev.

"Woo!" Kolev cheered right on schedule.
