Hand #70: Chance Kornuth Wins a 7.7 Million Pot From Ray Qartomy

May 26, 2022

Chance Kornuth-4

Ray Qartomy raises from the small blind to 525,000, and Chance Kornuth (pictured) calls from the big blind.

The flop comes Club AHeart JHeart 10, Qartomy bets 300,000, Kornuth raises to 1,200,000, and Qartomy thinks for about 20 seconds before he calls.

The turn card is the Heart 9, Qartomy checks, Kornuth bets 2,000,000, and Qartomy uses one of his Time Chips to tank for nearly a minute before he calls.

The river card is the Spade K, and both players check. Qartomy shows Heart ASpade 2 for a pair of aces, but Kornuth turns over Heart QDiamond 9 to win the pot worth 7.7 million with an ace-high straight.

Seat 1.  Steve Buckner  –  3,525,000
Seat 4.  Ray Qartomy  –  6,525,000
Seat 5.  Chance Kornuth  –  29,300,000
