De Rooij straightened out

De-Rooij cannot escape the straight

More straights to bust players!

Right after the break we have to report the next bust. It’s Thomas De-Rooij who found himself on a flop with chipleader Emil Viktor. The board read 10 7 9 with 300k in the middle.

De Rooij moved all-in for roughly 250k and Viktor called rather quickly. Showdown:

  • De-Rooij: 8 7 for a pair with a straight draw
  • Viktor: K J for an open ender

Turn and river came Q 4 giving Viktor a straight. “What is happening!” exclaimed Henry Mania who witnessed this impressive call while Viktor extends his chip lead and De-Rooij is out in 19th place.
