Koon Climbing Near the Top


Blinds 40,000/80,000

Niklas Astedt took to his usual role, opening to 176,000 from the button and Jason Koon called in the big blind. The {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} flop saw both players check to the {5-Clubs} turn card where Astedt bet 115,500 and Koon check-called.

A {10-Diamonds} completed the board, Koon tapped and Astedt bet 212,575. Koon check-called and Astedt tabled {k-Spades}{4-Spades}. Koon easily beat the air of the chipleader with his {k-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} which gave him a pair of eights to take down the pot.
