Verbakel and Kabrhel Clash Very Early

zedmaster84 • Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Martin Kabrhel

Martin Kabrhel limped the {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{7-Spades} in the cutoff and Bjorn Verbakel called in the small blind with the {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} while Alfredo Vega Meister checked from the big blin d with the {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{3-Clubs}.

The {k-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} flop brought a pot-sized bet worth 320,000 by Verbakel and Vega Meister folded his naked aces. Kabrhel called and the {a-Spades} followed on the turn. Verbakel bet the pot for 960,000 once more and Kabrhel called as the two chip leaders went to war.

A brick followed with the {5-Spades} river and Verbakel checked his option now. Kabrhel was into the tank and eventually separated a pot-sized bet while staring over to the other side of the table. He then made it 1,630,000 to go with 910,000 behind and now it was up to Verbakel for plenty of consideration.

The Dutchman reluctantly called to take a commanding lead while Kabrhel dropped below one million in chips.
