Sikorski Puts Sick Beat on Kostoulas

• Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

Chris Kostoulas opened for 8,000. Kat Sikorski made the call from the button and the player in the big blind completed with a call.

The flop came {3-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{q-Clubs}. It was checked to Kostoulas in the hijack and he continued with a bet of 15,000. Sikorski then three-bet min-raised to 30,000. It folded back to Kostoulas who then four-bet min-raised to 60,000.

Sikorski tanked for a few seconds before going all-in for 150,000. Kostoulas snap-called.

Kat Sikorski: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Chris Kostoulas: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

Kostoulas had flopped top set and his opponent was drawing very slim.

Sikorski was practically walking away from the table when the board completed with the {5-Hearts} on the turn and the {2-Hearts} on the river.

Sikorski went runner-runner to hit a straight to double through Kostoulas who was seriously crippled and was eliminated shortly thereafter.
