Caglan Takes from Novak

zedmaster84 • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Timur Caglan raised to 200,000 with the {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} and Daniel Novak called from two seats over in the cutoff with {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades}. Caglan bet the {Q-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts} flop for 310,000 and Novak called before the {5-Hearts} turn brought a second barrel worth 650,000.

Novak gave it some thought and called, before the {A-Diamonds} fell on the river. Caglan checked the stack of his opponent and moved all in, eventually forcing a fold from Novak.

Last but not least, Bansner limped in with the {4-Clubs} and Benoit filled up from the small blind with {8-Spades}{4-Hearts}. Timur Caglan squeezed to 495,000 with {A-Clubs}{10-Hearts} and forced folds.
