Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Timoshenko Five-Bets Preflop to Drag Huge Pot

• Level 8: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

After Cody made it 65,000 to go on the button, Timoshenko three-bet to 185,000 and the Brit asked for the exact amount of the raise. Cody then decided to four-bet to 315,000 and Timoshenko paused for more than two minutes or so in reflection.

The calm and cool Timoshenko eventually slid out a tower of chips to raise the action to 585,000. Cody surrendered in the face of this pressure play and Timoshenko jumped out to a sizable chip advantage.
