Preflop, Bogdan Balan moved all in (mid-position) for 8,200, with blinds at 300/600. Over to Nicolas Sievers, who rejammed for 17,900. Big blind Robrecht Winterink decided that he, too, wished to be part of the party, covering both (just).
Winterink: 8c 8d
Sievers: Jc Jh
Balan: 9h 9s
The board ran out Ac 2s 3c 7s 3h, busting Balan and building Sievers’ stack up to 44,000. Meanwhile Winterink had to be called back to the table to claim his <1,000 remaining chips; we’ll check back soon to see if he has made one of those chip-and-chair dreams a reality.
