When the hand started Zimnan Ziyard and Hauke Heseding were almost neck and neck at the top of the chip counts with around 4.7 million each. John Taramas was way back in third place with only 800,000.
Heseding raised to 200,000 from the small blind and Zimnan Ziyard called in the big blind. The flop was , Heseding bet 200,000 and Ziyard calmly called. The turn was the and Heseding once again wasted no time making his decision, and it was to bet for 400,000. Ziyard once again looked composed and made the call. Heading to the river we already had over 1 million in the pot when we saw the . Heseding bet 850,000 and Ziyard made a verbal call before flipping over and the crowd couldn't believe their eyes. Heseding looked to the roof with a "wtf" expression before flipping over !
Everyone was wondering how on earth nobody had gone broke, especially the most interested by-stander John Taramas!
The whole room then started talking about the hand. Was it played correctly? Should Ziyard have raised? At what point? Is the call correct on the river?
We love this game....
