Kostritsyn Keeps Firing, But Can't Shake Sijpkens

Shamus

Alexander Kostritsyn opened for 60,000 from under the gun and got one caller in Michiel Sijpkens in middle position.

The flop came {7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs}. Kostritsyn bet 110,000 and Sijpkens called. The turn was the {7-Spades}. This time Kostritsyn bet 230,000, and again Sijpkens called.

The river was the {Q-Diamonds}. Kostritsyn tried again, this time betting 575,000. Sijpkens went into the tank for some time, then emerged to call one more time.

Kostritsyn showed {J-Spades}{10-Spades}. Sijpkens turned over {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} and was rewarded handsomely for his calls. He's up to 3.66 million now, while Kostritsyn slips to 2.24 million.
