Forsmo Wins Massive Pot to Take Over the Chip Lead


We just watched a massive pot take place that resulted in Oleg Inge Forsmo jumping into the chip lead with 470,000!

We caught the action on the turn with about 140,000 already in the pot and the board reading {K-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. Igne Forsmo was first to act and bet 62,000 from middle position, which Nikoay Tyurin called right behind. Oleg Larichev then called off his last 4,300 from the hijack, and the {3-Diamonds} completed the board on the river.

Forsmo announced that he was all in and Tyurin callled off his last 80,000 or so with {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}. Unfortunately for him Forsmo held {6-Spades}{6-Hearts} for a flopped set and the win. Larichev, who held {K-Hearts}{3-Hearts}, and Tyurin were both eliminated on the hand while Forsmo jumped into the chip lead with 470,000.
