Pocket Eights Take it For Timoshenko

• Taso 5: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

After a minimum raise to 48,000 by Froehlich, Timoshenko three-bet to 124,000 and E-Fro shoved again for 727,000. Timoshenko insta-called and showed his {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}, which was racing against Froehlich's {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}. The flop of {2-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{K-Diamonds} was dry for E-Fro and he needed to spike a six-outer to win the hand.

The turn brought the {3-Clubs} and Froehlich was down to his last card. When the dealer peeled the {9-Diamonds} on the river, Timoshenko's pocket pair held up and he dragged the largest pot of the match to this point.

After the hand Froehlich opted to utilize only one of his two 800,000 bullets, leaving one in reserve. Timoshenko now has a chip lead of 3.2 million to 1.6 million and both players still have one add-on at their disposal.
