Petkov Doubles Up in Huge Battle of the Blinds
Lachezar Petkov in the small blind and Hyunsup Kim in the big blind got into a raising war preflop, resulting in a pot of 1,200,000 chips when the flop of 9 of Clubs, 5 of Hearts, was dealt.
Petkov then made a bet of 270,000, which Kim raised to 700,000. Petkov three-bet jammed for 1,250,000 and Kim was visibly distraught.
He asked for a count before he thought the situation over for a minute or so.
“I think I’m committed,” he concluded before slamming in the call to put Petkov at risk.
Lachezar Petkov: q of Spade, q of Clubs, Hyunsup Kim: 6 of Hearts, 6 of Diamonds,
Kim only had two clean outs but no six appeared on the k of Clubs, 9 of Spade, runout to save him. Petkov and Kim traded stacks as it was Petkov who obtained a stack of one and a half times the average.
