Soika Takes a Big Pot From Jacobson Before Break

Level 24 : 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Martin Jacobson opened with a raise to 85,000 on the button and Ihar Soika called from the big blind.

The flop was {K-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and Soika checked to Jacobson. Jacobson bet, making it 125,000 and he met resistance in the form of a check-raise from Soika. Soika made it 390,000 and after a bit, Jacobson called.

The turn was the {Q-Hearts} and Soika continued, betting 620,000. Jacobson thought for a bit, then called.

On the {A-Clubs} river, both players checked. Soika showed his {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs} for a turned straight and Jacobson mucked quickly. That allowed Soika to take down the pot to chip up to nearly six million.
