Roller Coaster for Zyrin

gaellej • Niveau 43: 2,000,000-4,000,000, 4,000,000 ante

On the first hand, Anatolii Zyrin shoved in the small blind and it was snap-called by Phuoc Nguyen in the blinds for a stack of 41,900,000.

Zyrin was in good shape to eliminate Nguyen, holding {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} versus {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} for Nguyen, but a board {2-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{8-Spades}{q-Spades}{7-Clubs} appeared, giving a set of eights to Nguyen as well as the double up.

The hand right after, Zyrin shoved for his last 9,900,000 and this time David Ripley called in the big blind for the following showdown:

Anatolii Zyrin: {k-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
David Ripley: {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}

Zyrin had the dominated hand but managed to find a board {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}, giving him a straight on the river for the needed double up.
