Luth Doubles Shalamov

• Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Mikhail Shalamov

PokerStars Team Online Pro Mikhail Shalamov moved all-in from the button for 325,000 with {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds} and was called by German player Peyman Luth in the big blind with {3-Hearts}{3-Spades} .

The flop of {5-Spades}{9-Clubs}{9-Spades} kept Luth ahead, as did the {8-Diamonds} turn, but the {8-Clubs} river counterfeited his hand and Shalamov's ace kicker played. Shalamov, who until that moment had been utterly silent, stood up and gave his hands such a clap that many players in the tournament room might have assumed thunder was overhead. Shalamov has a smile back on his face, while Luth grimaces as he slips well below the average.
