Platonov Takes from Five Diamond Champ

Chad_Holloway • Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante

Kevin Eyster, who won the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic for $1,587,382 back in December, raised to 1,100 from the cutoff and Aleksei Platonov called from the button. Both blinds folded, the flop came down {8-Spades}{2-Hearts}{9-Spades}, and Eyster bet 1,400.

Platonov made the call, the dealer burned and turned the {A-Hearts}, and Eyster led out for 3,600. Platonov raised to 8,100, Eyster made the call, and it was off to the {3-Spades} river, which both players checked.

Eyster tabled the {10-Hearts}{j-Clubs} for a missed straight, and Platonov revealed the {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for two pair and the win.
