Bust Outs – 31/07/2018 – 21:55
Here is some more people who busted out recently.
Tim Tim the new Chip Leader – 31/07/2018 – 21:33
Zoltan Lengyel raises to 7,000 with Tim Timotheou 3-betting to 21,000 and Zoltan calls.
Flop is Zoltan checks and Tim leads out for 50% of the Pot. Zoltan announces All in and Tim beats Zoltan with his chips in the middle. Card over.
Zoltan has for the Flopped Set and Tim looks deflated as he turns over
Turn is for a nothing card and Tim needs a Ace to stay in the game. This is a +400,000 chip pot. River is the to send the Massive pot to Tim and send Zoltan out of the Goliath. Incredible.
Tim now has a chip stack of nearly 500,000
