Martin Kabrhel recently took his seat at the Grand Hyatt Berlin and he has already been involved in some massive action.
Phillipe Barouk opened the action with a raise to 300 from the cutoff. Victor Ramdin flat-called from the button only to have Kabrhel cut out a three-bet to 1,350. Barouk called the raise while Ramdin folded his cards.
The flop fell and Kabrhel came out swinging for 1,175. Barouk made a raise to 2,500 and Kabrhel came right back over the top with a three-bet to 5,175. Barouk stayed the course.
The turned and Kabrhel sat for roughly one minute before moving 6,800 into the middle. Barouk called relatively quickly and the completed the board. Kabrhel announced a bet of 7,500 and Barouk wasted little time announcing that he was all in. This was a bet for Kabrhel's life and he sat pondering for some time before finally releasing his hand, leaving himself with 9,050 behind.
Barouk, on the other hand, is thriving early. By absorbing a good chunk of Kabrhel's stack he's now sitting on one of if not the biggest stack in the room with about 52,000.
