Marek Blasko opened to 75,000 in the hijack and was called by Roland Israelashvili in the small blind. Ryan Riess raised the pot to 280,000 in the big blind and Blasko stuck in his last 265,000. Israelashvili also called to create a side pot. The flop came and Israelashvili check-called the all-in of Riess for 344,000.
Riess was currently out front with his pair of aces but Israelashvili picked up a ton of outs on the turn card. Riess also had a flush draw but the was a complete brick on the river. The aces from Riess held up to eliminate Blasko and double up through Israelashvili.
"We have a new captain at the table," Tony G chimed in. "It's my turn now. I'm ready to be fed."
