Korik: Brave Call, Huge Double, New Chip Leader


Anthony Ruberto and Zachary Korik played out a 500k pot that saw the latter rise to the top of the counts.

The hand started with a cut-off raise from Ruberto and a small blind three-bet to 28,500 from Korik. The flop came down {3-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{7-Spades} and Korik continued for 35,500. Call.

The turn fell {a-Spades} and Korik slowed to a check. Ruberto asked for a count of how much Korik had remaining (235.5k) and then moved all in.

Korik took his time, muttering through the hand under his breath, and then called with {a-Spades}{5-Hearts}. Ruberto was semi-bluffing with {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and failed to hit his straight on the {3-Spades} river.

Korik's table mates were amazed at the call, and he sat their soaking up all the plaudits.
