Massive Pot Sees Opalikhin Surge to Top

mnuwwarah • Nível 22: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Rasmus Glaesel opened for 43,000 and got four callers. The flop came {3-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}, and Alan Schein fired a mere 20,000 into the field out of the big blind. Glaesel was having none of that and raised to 80,000, but he didn't chase away Aleksei Opalikhin on his left. Everyone else mucked, including Schein. Glaesel bet 220,000 on the {10-Spades} turn and Opalikhin called once more. The {4-Clubs} arrived on the river and prompted Glaesel to check. Opalikhin tanked a bit then bet 470,000. Glaesel tanked for about four minutes and then called.

Opalikhin: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}
Glaesel: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}

Glaesel's top set had been outdrawn, and he sent most of his stack over to Opalikhin in the hand.
