PAF qualifier Mikael Gronvik (now seated with 2017 MPNPT Tallinn champion Keimo Suominen – pictured) has made serene progress up the counts since the break – just shy of 100,000 as we move through level 5.
He isn’t invincible though – illustrated in the following pot versus Morten Holmen Tvergaard, who just raised Gronvik’s 1,500 bet on a board to 5,000 – a thoughtful pause from Gronvik followed by a call.
The arrived on the turn. This didn’t change the board texture too much and when Gronvik checked, Tvergaard didn’t slow down – a 7,000 bet following his initial raise.
Too rich for Gronvik – he backed down and slid his hand to the muck, leaving Tvergaard to move slightly closer to him in the counts – a very healthy 68,000 to his name following this hand.
