€1,100 High Roller

Cut in Half From the Beginning

Ernestok • Level 2: 200-400, 400 ante

Georgios Zarogiannis entered late in the High Roller and he went in Table 1 which apparently is a very aggressive table. This resulted in him losing more than half his stack in one of his very first hands.

David Reef raised to 1,500 chips from under-the-gun, Emil Trenkov called from the next seat and Marcel Galustov was the third player in a row to act, announcing a raise in 10,000 chips. The hand was folded to the big blind, where Zarogiannis was seated and he raised to 21,000. Reef and Trenkov folded, Galustov announced all-in and Zarogiannis snap-called by throwing a chip in the middle of the table.

Galustov: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Zarogiannis: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}

The board ran out {a-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{8-Spades} and Galustov managed to double up, having the shortest stack between the two players. The dealer counted his chips and found out they were 67,600 with Zarogiannis paying the lost hand to his opponent.
