Peters Picks Up the Pot

• Level 16: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante
Tobias Peters

Piotr Nurzynski raised to 18,000 from the cutoff, Tobias Peters called on the button and so did Aleksandr Merzhvinskiy in the big blind.

They all checked through the {9-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{9-Spades} flop to the {2-Clubs} on the turn. Merzhvinskiy checked, Nurzynski bet 35,000 and only Peters called.

The river completed the board with the {2-Spades}, Nurzynski bet 125,000 and Peters tanked. Peters stared at Nurzynski and his neck, cut out calling chips, stared a bit longer before making the call. Nurzynski hesitated before revealing {q-Diamonds}{j-Spades} but was behind as Peters held {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts} for the two pair on the board with the ace-kicker to pick up the pot.
