Wheel For Klodnicki

[user20283]

Stud-8

Making a wheel in Stud-8 is one of the best things you can do, and Chris Klodnicki just caught one, beating Michael Mizrachi in a serious pot.

Michael Mizrachi{x-}{x-} / {K-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} / {x-}
Chris Klodnicki{x-}{x-} / {A-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{2-Clubs} / {x-}

The {8-Hearts} had the bring-in, and Mizrachi just called. Klodnicki raised it up and Mizrachi was his only opponent on fourth street. Klodnicki fired again and Mizrachi called.

On fifth street Klodnicki check-called a bet, but on sixth he took the lead again. Klodnicki bet both sixth and seventh, and Mizrachi called him down.

Klodnicki turned over {3-Hearts}{5-Spades}{7-Clubs} for a wheel, and he scooped this pot. He is now back in second place but still far behind our runaway chip leader.

Roland Israelashvili has made it to the final five players here in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship and locked up a minimum of $317,882. Prior to this score, the largest of Israelashvili's career came in 2010 when he won the World Series of Poker Circuit Caesars Atlantic City Main Event for $264,715. Israelashvili has one other six-figure cash on record and that was from 2005 when he took 37th in the WSOP Main Event for $235,390.

Israelashvili won his way into this event via a $2,250 satellite that plenty of big names played in order to get a cheaper seat. Israelashvili has definitely maximized his small investment and will be pushing for even more, despite being the shortest stack remaining.
