Event #8: $1,500 Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em

The Sultan of Swings

[user38873] • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Athanasios Polychronopoulos has had a roller coaster of a day and we are only 90 minutes into it. Early on he lost a big pot with {A-}{K-} versus pocket eights. Just now we saw him back in action, opening from the cutoff and the big blind, Omar Mehmood, defended.

Mehmood then led the {7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{9-Clubs} flop for 23,000. Polychronopoulos raised to 75,000 and called all in after Mehmood shoved. Polychronopoulos was at risk for his last 223,000 and showed {9-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for nines while Mehmood revealed {10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} for sevens. Neither the {3-Spades} turn nor the {2-Spades} river changed anything, and Mehmood tapped the table with a "nice hand."
