Congratulations to Ib Hermansen from Denmark who finished 6th in our DeepStack Championship Event #48 $600 PLO $75K GTD winning $5,527.
Hermansen called from under the gun before Karl Held raised to 35,000 from the button. Hermansen called and both players watched the flop come A♦ 8♣ 9♠.
Hermansen checked. Held bet 75,000. Hermansen moved all in for 132,000. Held snap-called.
Held: Q♥ J♥ J♠ 8♦
Hermansen: 9♦ 7♥ 6♣ 5♥
Hermansen was unable to improve with his straight draw before ultimately falling to Held after Held improved to a set of eights.
