Van Luijk Cracks Million-Chip Mark

• Nivå 13: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
Dirk Van Luijk

On the river, with the board reading {8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}, Dick van Luijk put out a bet of 20,000. The only other player in the pot thought for a couple minutes, then raised to 80,000. Van Luijk thought for a minute, then put out a call. His opponent turned over {k-Spades}{9-Clubs} for king high, and Van Luijk showed {k-Clubs}{8-Spades} for a pair of eights, good enough to win the hand.

With this pot, Van Luijk became the first player in the tournament to reach the million-chip mark. He now sits with 1,073,500.
