Van Rooij Escapes Elimination

KaleGozer • Niveau 35: 200,000-400,000, 400,000 ante
Merijn van Rooij

Folded to the small blind, Merijn van Rooij open-shoved for 7,750,000 and Alejandro Lococo called after about 90 seconds from the big blind.

Merijn van Rooij: {k-Diamonds}{9-Spades}
Alejandro Lococo: {k-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

Van Rooij was dominated but paired his inferior kicker on the {j-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{8-Clubs} flop. The turn, however, brought the {q-Spades} to swing Lococo back into the lead.

The dealer burned and turned the river {10-Diamonds}, giving both players a king-high straight to chop the pot. Lococo glanced over to his rail and shook his head in disappointment.
