Congratulations to Hugo Pingray from the UK who finished 8th in our DeepStack Championship Event #75 $1,100 NLH MonsterStack $1M GTD winning $43,301.
Blinds: 250,000 / 500,000
Ankit Ahuja moved all in for 8,050,000 from under the gun. Hugo Pingray made the call from the button with 8,300,000 behind.
Ahuja: A♣ Q♠
Pingray: J♠ J♣
The board ran out T♦ 3♦ Q♥ 5♥ 4♦, giving Ahuja the double, after spiking a queen on the flop besting Pingray’s pocket jacks.
In the following hand, Pingray moved all in for his remaining 250,000 from the cutoff. Ubaid Habib called from the small blind. Ahuja checked from the big blind.
Habib and Ahuja then checked down the K♥ T♥ 7♦ K♦ J♣ before the three players tabled their cards.
Ahuja: J♥ 3♣
Pingray: Q♦ 5♦
Habib: 8♣ 3♥
Ahuja made a pair on the river, which was enough to take down the pot, resulting in Pingray finishing in 8th place.
