Toktabayev Puts Pressure on Vogelsang

• Level 6: 300-600, 600 ante

The board read {7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{8-Hearts} with 29,500 in the middle already.

Timur Toktabayev had the all-in button in front him with around 150,000 behind in the under-the-gun position.

Christoph Vogelsang was sitting in the tank as he was covered by Toktabayev. Vogelsang stared at Toktabayev, contemplated his options for a while, looked around the room, trying to figure out what to do. In the end, Vogelsang folded and showed {6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for the flopped pair of sixes and the gutshot straight draw.

Toktabayev smiled and showed {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for the turned pair of eights, the open-ended straight draw, and the flush draw.

"Monster draw!" Toktabayev said with a grin while Vogelsang looked relieved to have made the right fold.
