Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Toth Taken Out

• Nivel 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Team Pokerstars Pro Richard Toth open shoved under the gun for 20,300. Action folded around to Mikhail Yakovlev on the button, and he shoved all in over the top for 23,600 total. Michael Leah was next to act in the small blind, and it was his turn to go all-in, having both of them covered. The big blind folded, and all three players flipped their cards up.

Toth: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Yakovlev: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Leah: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

All of the action and drama that built up leading to the flop was quickly squashed when Yakovlev flopped a monster, as it came {9-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}. He could only lose if it came running jacks, kings, or aces, and that wouldn't happen as the turn came the {6-Spades} and the river brought the {8-Spades}. Yakovlev nearly tripled up on the hand, Leah dropped down to 9,300, and Toth was sent to the rail.
