End of Level 27: Blinds 25,000/50,000/5,000
Remaining Players: 5
Average Stack: 1,905,000
Right under the noses of John Marvinny and Spyros Malakotsis, engaged in agreement banter, a huge pot developed.
With a pot sized bet left on the river, the aggressive Dennis Lisovskiy pushed in his stack, a life or death moment of 1,100,000 to win 1,000,000 into the only player who could bust him – chip leader Venkat.
The board was . Back door clubs had missed, and only the unlikely forms of straights existed.
A tough, truly polarized spot.
A long time passed, and finally the table realized what was happening. Venkat, so even-keeled and hard to read, finally seemed to break composure. He knew this call would put him in a dominating position.
He dropped the chips in.
Immediately Dennis leapt up and shook his fist. He knew he was good, and sat down to flip over , a big two pair at this stage and an even bigger pot.
He’s got the lead with over 3,500,000 now.
