2013 World Series of Poker

Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Lykov Applying Maxim(um) Pressure

• Nivå 5: 200-400, 50 ante

On the {4-Spades}{9-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} board, Maxim Lykov's opponent fired a bet of 9,000 into an already substantial pot, but the Russian pro responded with a raise to 25,000.

The avalanche of orange T5000 tournament chips buried the other player, and he quickly folded to Lykov's power play.

As Day 1b of the Main Event edges nearer to its conclusion, pros like Lykov are wielding their big stacks like weapons, clubbing their exhausted opponents repeatedly to extract as many chips as possible heading into the bag-and-tag portion of the night.
