There was over 250k in the pot by the time I arrived on the river, the board reading Th 5c 9h 7c As. Fotios Ntamaris had gone all in, or at least I think he had – a 300k bet was across the line but around 30k remained behind it and the dealer hadn’t placed the triangular All In button next to his bet. Either way. After a while, Mark Cobain called, and Ntamaris flipped Jd 8c for the straight. “Oh lovely,” said Cobain with what sounded like genuine admiration, and mucked his own hand. He’s down to 345k.
Ntamaris is now very much the chip leader on over 920k – I can’t see many other stacks over around 500-ish at the moment.
