Banic Bullies Back The Lead

• Ниво 31: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Ivan Banic

On a less than dramatic board until the river, Ivan Banic put in a big bet of 1.4m on a board of J {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}{2-Hearts} {K-Hearts} {4-Hearts}.

Croitoru had the decision and called with {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}, but he was wrong to do so with Banic holding {J-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and a thrilling 2.2m swing in chips saw Banic take the lead.

the chips now show exactly how disparate the stacks are divided, with Banic and Croitoru both massive favourites to make the heads-up battle. Everyone else is considering ICM with each move.
