Becker and Israelashvili Bust to Burst the Bubble
All of a sudden, there were two all-in and call in the first hand of Pot-Limit Omaha and that could essentially burst the money bubble without going hand-for-hand.
Johannes Becker raised the pot and Dzmitry Urbanovich three-bet the pot out of the big blind. Becker piled it in for 1,575,000 with the words "let's gamble" and Urbanovich snap-called.
Becker pushed his ace-nine of hearts towards the board and Benny Glaser immediately said "don't do that."
The flop gave Becker trips deuces while the turn saw Urbanovich with a flush draw. The river instead improved Urbanovich to trips jacks and Becker was left empty-handed.
"At least I didn't bubble this one," he said while at the same time there was also a showdown at the other table.
Daniel Negreanu had raised to 160,000 and Roland Israelashvili called from the big blind, they got it in after the flop.
The turn and river failed to improve Israelashvili to let the bubble burst.
