Action has picked up here in Studio 3, as we've just seen back-to-back all-in and call situations. This time around it was Jens Kerper at risk against Kosta Varoxis.
Varoxis opened the pot with a raise to 50,000 from the small blind and Kerper made the call in the big. The flop came down and Varoxis led out with a 90,000 bet. Kerper then moved all in over the top for about 400,000 and Varoxis snap-called, holding . Kerper would need some help, holding nothing but .
The turn brought the giving Kerper a world of new outs, but the river blanked -- -- and Kerper joined the rail in 10th place.
After the hand, Varoxis was a bit shell-shocked and revealed to the table that he barely knew he'd won the hand. We counted Varoxis at 1.3 million in chips after the dust settled.
