Winkler Gets Hookwinked

• Nivel 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Athanasios Polychronopoulos raised to 33,000 from early position and action folded to Sebastian Winkler in in the cutoff who re-raised to 85,000. Polychronopoulos called and they saw the flop come {q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Both players checked and the turn brought the {6-Hearts}. Polychronopoulos bet out 75,000 and Winkler raised to 175,000 which Polychronopoulos called. The river was the {8-Diamonds} and Polychronopoulos bet out 150,000 leaving himself only around 350,000 behind.

Winkler went into the tank. He cut out chips that made it appear he was going to raise but sat for a number of minutes debating what to do. He eventually decided to fold and Polychronopoulos proudly flipped over the {a-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for ace high. Winkler groaned and admitted he had folded ace-king.

The large pot was shipped over to Polychronopoulos as he sat with a huge grin on his face.
