Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Blumenthal Doubles Through Metalidi

Eddie Blumenthal opened to 42,000 from under-the-gun and and was called by Artem Metalidi on the button. Luis Rodriguez Cruz also came along from the big blind.

The flop came {3-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and Cruz checked to Blumenthal, who bet 81,000. Metalidi called and Cruz folded.

The turn brought a {3-Spades} and Blumenthal bet again - this time for 157,000. Metalidi again made the call.

A {3-Hearts} landed on the river and Blumenthal announced he was all in for his last 480,000. Metalidi asked for a count and announced, "Call." Blumenthal flipped over {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds} for treys-full of aces and a disappointed Metalidi revealed {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} for treys-full of kings.

Blumenthal scooped the massive pot and is now up to 1,400,000. Metalidi is down to 1,100,000.
