Event #5: 50th Annual High Roller - $50,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Eibinger Fights for Dead Chips

• Level 5: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

In the first hand after the dinner break, Dario Sammartino was late getting back to his seat, therefore his big blind of 4,000 chips was up for grabs. Rainer Kempe raised from the cutoff but Matthias Eibinger wasn't going to let him steal that easily. Eibinger stuck in a three-bet and Kempe called to see a flop of {q-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Hearts}.

Kempe checked to Eibinger who continued for 36,500. Kempe still called and the {7-Clubs} landed on the turn. Kempe checked again and Eibinger pushed in a bet of 102,000. Kempe used one of his time extensions before sliding in a raise for nearly all of his chips. Eibinger instantly mucked and Kempe dragged in the pot.
