We caught up to the heads up action on the board and there was already over 100,000 in the pot. Alex Apostol checked and his opponent moved all in for 129,000.
Apostol went into the tank and flashed his while he thought it over. “That’s a really good hand” said his opponent and after thinking it over for a bit more Apostol called.
The player showed for just ace high and Apostol turned over his . The river card sealed the deal for Apostol to earn him the knockout.
He is now sitting behind a massive stack of close to a million and has taken the chip lead with just 39 players remaining.
