We missed the precise action but witnessed the end of a hand where Vladimir Troyanovskiy would eventually hit the rail.
We got there on a flop of . Dan Shak had two green 25,000 chips in front of him, acting from the small blind. Vladimir Troyanovskiy, acting out of the big blind, shoved all in for 121,900 and action was back on Shak. Shak tanked for a bit and eventually grabbed the calling chips, and moved them forward.
Troyanovskiy showed and was far ahead as Shak tabled .
The Russian high roller wasn't celebrating yet, and in the end would have no reason to. In the contrary: the on the turn was a blank but the on the river sure wasn't!
Troyanovskiy got up from the table, muttered several Russian words followed by "What the f*#k?", followed by more Russian words that didn't sound too positive either.
Not only Troyanovskiy was stunned, several players at the table could barely hold their laughs back as well. One of the masseuses even leaned a bit over the table to double check that what she thought she saw, was right.
Now that Troyanovskiy had left the area, Shak laughed with the table. "Don't write that" he said with a smile on his face. "Nothing, just a standard super high roller hand" Haralabos Voulgaris added. "People tried to tell me there was no value in these $100k's..." Juanda added to the banter.
