MPNPT stalwart Jari Hurri is out in a monster of a pot that’s propelled Sandris Mukans to the upper echelons of the chip counts on around 115k.
Our intrepid reporter (thanks, Jen Mason!) caught it on the turn, the board reading . Mukans bet 5.5k, only for Hurri to insta-shove for 35k or so. Mukans umm’d and ahh’d for a bit, and eventually made the call.
Mukans: for top pair, top kicker
Hurri: for a flush draw and a gutshot
River: a nothing-y
“I wanted to fold,” admitted Mukans as Hurri took his leave, “But ace-king… Ace-ten I fold for sure!”
