David Hu, Heaven…
The story we want to tell you belongs to the Dutchman of clear Asian descent David whoawho had started his final table started from everyone with fairly tight stacks 31 big blinds.
In fact, at first glance it might indicate that the stack isn’t the biggest, but as you can read on screen right away, the Dutchman was third in chips at the time.
After initial arguments, after which some short stacks withdrew from the argument quite early, the game became quite aggressive 6 players leftwith a count situation that made Hu look strong, also and largely thanks to his hand’s elimination of the unfortunate Ukrainian Ruslan Volkov.
We’re at level 39, which are blinds 400,000/800,000 Before 800,000 and Volkov opens from Under The Gun up 1.6 million in mini-raisesHu plays the small blind and Shova for 21.5 million, This will cause the bottom bracket to fold and break away from the original raise.
The flop gives the Ukrainian some headaches as the Q falls 2 5but Volkov’s hand definitely stays in front.
The real problems come on the turn when his opponent has a heart draw, a 2which is only the prelude to the last mockery, an 8 The complete the work and leaves Volkov stunned, who has to retire in sixth place.
This comparator compares the welcome bonuses that can currently be checked on the websites of Italian operators. This table is informational and the operators are displayed in random order.
With the win of this pot, Hu moves on 35.5 million chipswhich means a provisional second place and a concrete chance to enter the tournament with over 44 big blinds which at 5 left are a treasure trove of great views.
However, in the next level, Hu begins to rack up victory after victory, failing in the most important one Michael Atallah.
Hu opens to 2 million from the hijack, clicks the raise again, the Lebanese calls on the button and off dukic from the big blind.
On the Q flop 10 7Dukic checks before Hu moves in continuation bet Atallah increased to 2.5 million 6 million and the BB works with a hand that probably deserved better luck, 8 6shouts whoo.
The turn brings a 4 and after some time Hu Check wrinkles on his opponent’s push for just over 20 million.
It’s an excellent crease from the stream as the Lebanese held A Qwhile Hu played with K Q.
Still at the same level after an endless series of misses that reduced it to less than 10 big blinds, Hu got them all in the middle, from the big blind for 9.3 million to Netaliev’s button shove, which covered him for about 2 million.
This is the showdown that doomed the Dutchman:
