Preflop, with the blinds at 30,000 and 60,000 and a 10,000 ante, Bozinovic raised to 125,000, Robert Campbell called in late position, and Placey called in the small blind. On the flop Placey bet 275,000, Bozinovic raised to 675,000, Campbell folded, Placey went all-in, and Bozinovic called and was all-in.


There was 430,000 in the pot when the preflop action came to Placey in the small blind, and these 4.5 : 1 pot odds proved irresistible to him as he called the extra 95,000 with his King and dangling kicker. These are great hands for losing chips to better Kings and going broke to nut flushes. Placey semibluffed the flop which gave him the four flush, but Bozinovic was quick to protect his hand and build a pot with a solid raise. Placey’s semibluff had been successfully fielded by Bozinovic, but rather than calling to take a look at the turn Placey moved all-in into Bozinovic’s nut holding. Given Placey’s preflop call it’s not surprising he became excited with the appearance of a flush draw. Unfortunately Bozinovic could not fade the non-pairing clubs, and he was eliminated in 46th for $152,025. Placey had assembled a huge stack, but Martin Jacobson quickly separated him from his chips eliminating him in 35th for $230,487.
