Yaxi Zhu

PokerStars Team Pro Yaxi Zhu was just involved in a big hand where we picked up the action on the turn.

The board read {7-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and Alexandros Kolonias checked from the big blind. Raouf Ibrahim made a bet of 1,500 from first position and Yaxi Zhu called from the button. Kolonias now check raised to 7,000 and Ibrahim folded. Zhu called.

The {6-Diamonds} completed the board and Kolonias bet 15,000. Zhu tanked for a long time, but eventually she tossed in three 5,000-chips to call. Kolonias showed {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and Zhu mucked.

Despite losing that sizable pot, Zhu still has a decent stack of just under what she started with.

Alexandros Kolonias gr 63,000 13,000
Yaxi Zhu CN 46,000 -4,600
