Silver Destroys Stack; Sormunen Runs Good

[user38873] • Nível 5: 200-400, 50 ante

"Couldn't you have told me that five minutes ago?" Max Silver joked towards Pasi Sormunen, after he had just destroyed his stack with {A-}{K-} against the pocket aces of Damien Luis.

Soon after, Sormunen limped in from the small blind and Dario Sammartino checked. Sormunen bet the {Q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop for 1,000 and received a call. The Finn then bet the {4-Hearts} turn for 2,000 and the {6-Diamonds} river for 3,000. Sammartino called the first bet quickly, the second rather reluctantly. "One pair," Sormunen announced and turned over the {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades}.

"I have one pair too," Sammartino said while glancing up from his massage and then sliding his cards into the muck.

At almost the same time, Oleksii Khoroshenin walked next to the table with a ticket in his hand and grabbed the stack for Day 1a of the Main Event. He will play today and then enter the €10,000 Single Day High Roller tomorrow.
