Event #8: €25,500 No-Limit Hold'em Super High Roller

Sontheimer Pull Off a Check-Raise

ajlamers • Level 6: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

Three players stuck in 55,000 each preflop and the dealer fanned a flop of {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{5-Spades}. Steffen Sontheimer checked from the hijack and Stanley Choi also checked from the cutoff. James Romero tossed in a bet of 70,000 on the button and Sontheimer check-raised to 200,000.

Choi quickly got out of the way while it took a little longer for Romero to make a decision. He also decided to believe Sontheimer and sent his cards to the muck.
