zedmaster84 • Level 24: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante
Alan Sabo

Samuel Stranak raised the pot to 240,000 out of the small blind and Alan Sabo repotted to 780,000 in the big blind. That led to an inquiry about the stack size of his countryman and Stranak then called.

On the {q-Spades}{8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} flop, Stranak checked, Sabo jammed for 1,360,000 and was called instantly.

Alan Sabo: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Samuel Stranak: {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{6-Clubs}

Sabo vaulted out of his seat and asked for a club or queen, then sat back down. He jumped up in celebration when the {a-Hearts} fell on the turn and the {3-Clubs} river than led to the victory lap of Sabo as he avoided elimination.
