We were just talking to Russell Carson about how this is going to be a very long night. We concurred that most players were deep and of sound mind…and then this happened!
The action folds around to the blinds with Adria Balaguer in the small and Daniel Erlandsson in the big, and suddenly there is a stench of testosterone in the air. Balaguer starts the aggression with a raise to 50,000 and Erlandsson calls. The flop is J 3 2, Balaguer bets 42,000 and Erlandsson calls. The turn is the 7 and Balaguer loads up his weapon and fires out a second barrel of 117,000. Erlandsson has been aggressive throughout and this hand was no different as he pumps it up to 220,000. The young spaniard makes the call and we get to a river of Q. Balaguer checks to Erlandsson and he moves all-in.
"I call," says Balaguer.
Erlandsson taps the felt, mucks his hand, and stands up to leave. Jan Bendik tells them both that they have to turn their cards over because it is an all in showdown. Erlandsson shows 6 5 for a complete airbag and Balaguer shows A J for the winning hand and Erlandsson is free to leave the tournament area.
