Jouhkimainen Relieves Alekberovas of a Bunch of Chips

Joni Jouhkimainen

With 1.19 million in the pot and a board reading {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}, Anaras Alekberovas checked from the big blind with {9-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and then called when Joni Jouhkimainen bet 825,000 from the button with {A-Spades}{9-Clubs}.

The {J-Spades} river failed to complete Alekberovas' flush, and he checked. Jouhkimainen took the opportunity to bet 1.035 million, Alekberovas woke up with a check-raise to 3.3 million. Jouhkimainen gave it some serious thought, tanking for several minutes, before making the call, and he was glad he did as his two pair took down the 9.44 million pot.
