A massive pot of around 30,000 just took place on Table 20. Paf Poker qualifier Niko Ekberg got it all-in with [Tc7c] with a flush draw and gutshot straight draw on the [kc6c9d] flop.
Aleko Charmurkov was covered by his opponent and called for about 14,000 with [AsAc]. Ekberg took a huge lead in the hand after the [3c] on the turn completed his flush draw.
Ekberg just needed to sweat another club not coming on the river. Fate was not on Charmurkov’s side as the [ts] was not one of the cards he needed to snag a better flush and became one of the day’s early casualties.
