The short-stacked Pavel Krapivin has been slowly and surely chipping up with some aggressive and strategic all-in bets.
Dan Heimiller just won a hefty pot in a hand against Pavel Krapivin in a hand where Heimiller was quite the aggressor. Preflop, from the button, Heimiller raised to 300K, and Krapivin called. The flop fell 2♦ K♠ 10♥, Krapivin checked, Heimiller c-bet 300K, and Krapivin called. With a 9♥ on the river, Krapivin, again, checked, Heimiller c-bet 450K, and after some thought, Krapivin called. With a 5♠ on the river, Krapivin checked, Heimiller c-bet 700K, and after a long thought, Krapivin folded. Heimiller showed his pocket jacks.
