Big Slick Does the Trick for Troyanovskiy

Chad_Holloway • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Vladimir Troyanovskiy

Vladimir Troyanovskiy raised to 90,000 from the button only to have chip leader Mike Watson three-bet to 240,000 from the small blind. Troyanovskiy responded by four-betting to 610,000, and Watson five-bet all in. Troyanovskiy snap-called off for 2.32 million total.

Troyanovskiy: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Watson: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}

It was a flip, but not after the flop came down {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} to give Troyanovskiy trips. Neither the {J-Diamonds} turn nor {8-Diamonds} river was the black nine Watson needed, and he shipped over a big stack of chips to Troyanovskiy.
