Benjamin Pollak

Hand #175: Benjamin Pollak pushed all-in from the button for 17.9 million and Dan Ott called from the small blind. Scott Blumstein moved all-in over the top from the big blind and the action was back on Ott. Ott mucked his hand and the remaining two players tabled their cards.

Blumstein: {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Pollak: {j-Clubs}{4-Clubs}

The flop came {q-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{7-Clubs}, giving Pollak the lead with a pair of jacks but Blumstein picked up a two-way straight draw. The turn was the {6-Diamonds} and the river landed the {7-Hearts} providing no help for Blumstein. Pollak found a timely triple up to around 23 big blinds.
