Good Call on the River for Galustov

Ernestok • Level 20: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

Marcel Galustov opened to 85,000 first to act and the action folded to Marios Tzakos in the big blind who put in the extra chips to make the call.

The flop was {j-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} and both the players checked.

The {2-Spades} on the turn brought a 100,000 bet from Tzakos and Galustov called.

The {4-Spades} completed the board and Tzakos bet 150,000 this time. Galustov thought it for a couple of minutes and finally made the call with Tzakos opening reluctantly his {k-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for just king-high. Galustov proved that he made a very good call with his {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}, having ace-high.

Dimitrios Dimitros

Dimitrios Dimitros tried for another big double but this time the board didn't run on his favor. Marios Tzakos raised under the gun to 60,000, Marcel Galustov and Dimitrios Michailidis called in the two next seats, while Dimitros completed from the big blind.

The flop was {3-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Dimitros thought about it for one minute and announced all in. Tzakos folded, and Galustov asked for a count. The dealer made the count, and it was 405,000 with Galustov making the call. Michailidis folded and the two players opened their cards.

Dimitros: {a-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Galustov: {k-Clubs}{4-Clubs}

Dimitros hand two overcards and a gutshot with the {k-Diamonds} on the turn and the {7-Hearts} on the river sending the Greek player in the rail.

Double-Up for Dimitros

Ernestok • Level 20: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

Dimitrios Dimitros told us a couple of minutes before the final table starts, that we must be ready to write epic updates from his run. The fact is that he started really, since he just more than doubled up.

Polykarpos Stryvakis raised from under-the-gun to 60,000, Dimitrios Dimitros shoved for 154,000 from the next seat and Marios Tzakos re-raised to 400,000 in the left of Dimitros. All players folded, including Stryvakis and Tzakos had a great chance to bust the first player of Day 3.

Tzakos: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Dimitros: {a-Spades}{6-Spades}

The board ran out {3-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{q-Spades}{q-Clubs} and a big "Yes!" came out of Dimitros' mouth as soon as the turn fell. He is now getting back in the game with 428,000.

Marios Tzakos Leads Final Table of Six in 2019 PokerNews Cup High Roller


Six players left in the final table of 2019 PokerNews Cup High Roller and it could be anybody's game. The five stacks are between 1.3 and 2.1 million which means that it is really hard to make a prediction about who is going to win it. The only player who is in a very difficult spot is Dimitrios Dimitros who advanced to Day 3 with just 6 big blinds. But we've heard and witnessed many "a chip and a chair" stories in the past.

All players have their eyes in the first place prize of €28,100, and each of them is guaranteed €4,410. Marios Tzakos will start as the chip leader with 85 big blinds, a massive stack he acquired after a huge pot he played with Dimitros near the end of Day 2.
