Bobokhidze Wins Six Way Action

KaleGozer • Ниво 9: 300-600, 75 ante

Under the gun, Silviu Togui opened the action with a raise 1,500. Little did he expect that no less than five players would call, including Ilia Bobokhidze on the button. The {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{3-Hearts} flop got checked to the Georgian, who bet 7,000. Only the player in the small blind check-called the bet, the other players quickly folded.

On the {8-Diamonds} turn, the small blind checked and Bobokhidze instantly moved all in for 35,000. Reluctantly, the small blind had to relinquish his hand, and one of the many Georgians in the field today raked in the pot.
