Battle of the Big Stacks

Niveau 21 : 10,000/20,000, 20,000 ante

The "Table of Death" has just been broken, but not before a clash of two huge stacks.

Rittie Chuaprasert raised to 50,000 in late position and Maxx Coleman called in the big blind.

Coleman checked the {7-Hearts}{9-Spades}{k-Hearts} flop to Chuaprasert, who continued for 35,000. Coleman called.

Both players checked the {8-Clubs} turn, then on the river {10-Spades}, Coleman checked once more and faced a 75,000 bet.

After about a minute of thought, Coleman folded and Chuaprasert boosted his stack to 1,500,000

Maxx Coleman defended his big blind when the button raised to 45,000.

The flop came down {6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{8-Clubs} and Coleman check-called a bet of 40,000 from the button player.

The turn of the {4-Clubs} was checked through to the river of {9-Hearts}. Coleman bet 125,000 which sent his opponent into the tank. After about 30-seconds of thinking, the opponent made the call. Coleman turned over {6-Spades}{4-Diamonds} for two pair, and the button player mucked, sending the pot to Coleman.
