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 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 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 for nines while Mehmood revealed for sevens. Neither the turn nor the river changed anything, and Mehmood tapped the table with a "nice hand."
