Ponakovs Gets Through With a Jam

zedmaster84 • Niveau 34: 50,000-100,000, 12,500 ante

The action started with a min-raise to 200,000 by Shankar "Saquon" Pillai from under the gun and Jack Salter, fresh off his double up, three-bet to 580,000 from one seat over. Out of the big blind, Aleksejs Ponakovs four-bet jammed for 2,249,276.

What followed was a quick fold by Pillai and Salter needed some consideration to come to the same conclusion.
