Event #9: €25,000 No-Limit Hold'em High Roller

Saout and Badziakouski Battle in Long Hand

Brentharrington • Level 3: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

In a hand that stretched well into the new level, Mikita Badziakouski appeared to complete the small blind and then limp-raise to 27,000 when Antoine Saout made it 8,000 to go. Saout called and they took in a {5-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} flop. Badziakouski bet 30,000 and Saout called. On the {a-Clubs} turn, Badziakouski checked and called 70,000. The river brought a {7-Spades}. Badziakouski checked again and Saout bet 131,500.

Badziakouski took a deep breath and stretched. He counted out a call and then held on to the chips, tanking for a couple of minutes. Eventually, he smiled at his neighbor and mucked.
