Kruk Doubles Big Through Muehloecker

KaleGozer • Level 12: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Christopher Kruk

Christopher Kruk raised to 25,000 from under the gun, Thomas Muehloecker three-bet to 76,000 on the button and Kruk called. On the {K-Spades}{9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} flop, Kruk check-called 55,000 from Muehloecker.

The turn brought the {4-Diamonds} and Kruk checked. Muehloecker moved all in, effectively Kruk's remaining stack of 235,000, and the Canadian called it off to create the biggest pot of the tournament so far.

Thomas Muehloecker: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}
Christopher Kruk: {A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

Muehloecker was ahead and needed to dodge a nine or diamond to win. He failed to do so, as the dealer put the {2-Diamonds} on the river to send the chip lead pot over to Kruk.
