Ruzicka and Mortensen

• Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Vojtech Ruzicka

November Niner Vojtech Ruzicka and Danish crusher Morten Mortensen clashed in a huge pot. Ruzicka opened to 30,000 from under the gun, and was called by Mortensen on the button. On the flop of {9-Spades}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts} , Ruzicka c-bet for 64,000 and Mortensen called.

The turn of {5-Hearts} saw Ruzicka check to Mortensen, who bet 88,000. Ruzicka, who without headphones looks like he plays along to a rhythm quite of his own, called. The river of {2-Spades} saw Ruzicka check again. Mortensen again bet, this time for 175,000, but again Ruzicka called. Mortensen turned over {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades} but Ruzicka flipped {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades} and scooped a massive pot.

Mortensen has just 239,000 and will be desperate to double his way back into contention on a table including Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier to his left. At the end of that hand, Vojtech Ruzicka (pictured) has 1,160,000.
