€100,000 Super High Roller

From the Short Stack to Legitimate Contention

• Taso 17: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #31: Dan Cates opened for 80,000 from early position with the {k-Spades}{7-Spades} and took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #32: Rono Lo limped from the cutoff with the {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} only to have Igor Kurganov raise all in for 765,000 with the {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} in the small blind.

"How much?" Ole Schemion asked after looking down at the {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}. He then moved all in over the top for 3.17 million. Lo folded and it was off to the races. The {5-Hearts}{8-Spades}{8-Diamonds} flop was safe for Kurganov, as was the {3-Spades}. All he had to do was dodge an ace and king on the river, which he did when the {9-Diamonds} blanked. Ship another double to the Russian.
