Michal Mrakes

The board read {j-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{9-Hearts}{k-Spades} with Yang Zhang all-in for 144,000 from the mid-position and called by Ahmed Abdella in the small blind and Michal Mrakes in the late position.

Abdella and Mrakes were playing for the side-pot that already contained 220,000. Abdella had checked and Mrakes bet 175,000. Abdella tanked while getting a massage and decided to call.

The river completed the board with the {6-Spades} and Abdella checked for the last time. Mrakes counted out some chips and put 450,000 over the line for the bet. Abdella tanked and tanked, and then decided to fold. Mrakes tabled {a-Hearts}{q-Spades} to scoop the side-pot but Zhang tripled up as he held {9-Spades}{8-Spades} for the rivered flush.
