Lengthy Hand Results in a Huge Double Up for Vrakas

ajlamers • Level 16: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante
Georgios Vrakas

Faramarz Safari opened to 32,000 in the hijack and was called by Viktor Walter in the cutoff and Georgios Vrakas in the big blind. The flop fell {j-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{2-Spades} which stirred up plenty of action and a long time to do so.

Vrakas checked and Safari continued for 58,000. Walter called and Vrakas thought for a moment before raising to 207,000. Safari went into the tank for nearly five minutes before he shoved all in for 465,000. Now it was Walter in the tank for well over five minutes as well. Vrakas eventually called the clock and Walter ditched his cards to the muck. Vrakas quickly called and the cards were on their backs.

Georgios Vrakas: {a-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Faramarz Safari: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}

The turn was the {k-Diamonds} to give Safari a set of kings and eliminate a few of Vrakas' outs. However, the {3-Clubs} still came on the river and Vrakas made the nut flush to double up through Safari, leaving him on crumbs.
