Event #5: €1,100 MONSTER STACK No-Limit Hold'em

Bozhinoski Doubles Up Again

poolshir • Level 9: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante
Simon Bozhinoski

Simon Bozhinoski raised to 2,600 from mid-position and Mikko Hirvonen three-bet to 8,000 from the hijack. Gerrit Muller four-bet to 21,000 on the button. Bozhinoski tried to shove by pushing all his chips over the line but didn't announce anything so was forced to just call. Hirvonen folded.

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} and Bozhinoski now checked. Muller put in a stack of 5,000-value chips and Bozhinoski went all-in for his last 31,500 which was actually less than what had Muller bet.

Simon Bozhinoski: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}
Gerrit Muller: {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}

"Nice try" someone at the table said and the rest all laughed, including Muller himself.

Bozhinoski had the pair of queens and Muller had a gutshot to the straight draw.

The rest of the board was completed with the {6-Hearts} on the turn and the {5-Spades} on the river to keep Bozhinoski ahead to double up.
