Analysis

This hand saw two of the largest stacks at the table clash, with a flush versus a full house resulting in a new chip leader. Andrei Boghean at one point had nearly four times as many chips as the next-largest stack during the early final table action, but had since doubled up a few short stacks to enter this hand with just over 6.3 million while Eelis Pärssinen sat in second place with 3.7 million. Boghean raised from the button with K-2 suited and Benjamin Rolle defended his big blind holding J-10 offsuit. The flop gave Rolle top two pair while Boghean picked up a king-high flush draw with some backdoor straight possibilities. Rolle check-called with his top two pair and the turn brought the 6™ to complete Boghean’s flush. He kept his foot on the gas, firing 629,800 into the pot of 940,000. Rolle still had top two pair, and also had the J™ for a flush draw of his own in case he was up against a made low flush. He made the call and the river brought the J´, giving Rolle jacks full of tens with roughly one pot-sized bet left in his stack. He quickly checked and Boghean bet enough to put him all-in. Rolle made the call to double up and take the chip lead. There wasn’t much Boghean could realistically do to avoid doubling Rolle up on the river given the way the hand played out on earlier streets and the resulting stack-to-pot ratio for Rolle. A king-high flush is likely just too strong of a hand to check back with on the river against a big-blind defender who check-called both the flop and the turn. Boghean was still in third chip position after losing this massive pot, and he managed to outlast two opponents before being knocked out. He took home $169,893 for his fifth-place showing.
