Duta Doubles Through Liperis

zedmaster84 • Level 29: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Over on the outer table, Chris Johnson raised to 240,000 and was called by Florian Duta in the small blind and Yiannis Liperis in the big blind. Duta only had 710,000 behind and got those in after a {10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{3-Spades} flop. Liperis used 15 seconds of his time bank before asking Johnson for the stack size, then called, Johnson folded.

Florian Duta: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}
Yiannis Liperis: {K-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

Liperis improved to two pair on the {K-Spades} turn, but the very same card gave Duta the king-high straight. A blank {6-Clubs} followed on the river and Duta doubled.

Yiannis Liperis gb 2,495,000 -1,430,000
Florian Duta ro 2,260,000 1,120,000
Chris Johnson us 2,000,000 405,000
