Shak Busts Robl In Big Hand During Break

Andrew Robl

The last hand before the break was a long one that ran several minutes into the break. It all started when Andrew Robl raised to 3,000 from under the gun, and Masa Kagawa called from the cutoff seat. In the small blind, Dan Shak announced that he was all in, having forgotten that the action preflop is only pot-limit. The dealer informed Shak he could only raise the pot to 13,000. Shak was corrected and made it 13,000 to go.

Action got back to Robl, and he took a minute before calling. Kagawa folded.

The flop came down {9-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}, and Shak announced that he was all in for a little under 100,000. Robl had slightly less than Shak, but the stacks were very close to even. After several long minutes in the tank, Robl made the call.

Shak tabled the {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} for just ace-king high. Robl had the best of it, flopping two pair with the {10-Spades}{9-Spades}.

The turn delivered the {A-Diamonds} to put Shak in front. The river completed the board with the {4-Diamonds}, and that was it. Shak had won the hand and eliminated Robl as the first to go.
