Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Corkins Ropes a Pot

Hoyt Corkins raised to 3,300 before the flop, and Rifat Palovic three-bet to 10,500 out of position. Corkins didn't waste much time calling, and off they went to the flop.

It came {10-Hearts} {3-Diamonds} {8-Spades}, and Corkins called a continuation bet. On the {Q-Hearts} turn, Palevic tried again with another 20,900. Corkins flatted once again, and the {Q-Diamonds} paired the board on the river. Palevic stacked together a bet of about 27,000, then gazed up at the pot and paused. He reached back into his stack and made his tower of chips 55,400 tall, then glanced up at Corkins. Palevic put his hand behind the would-be bet, pump faked... and then checked. Corkins checked it right back, and Palevic led out a loud, "Uhhhhhhh!" He instantly slid his cards into the muck.

Corkins showed up {10-Clubs} {J-Hearts} to win the pot. The two men are essentially even now with about 400,000 chips apiece.
