Goetz Scores Big Double Through Soltani
$1,150 TKPT Main Event Day 2 9/84
Level 18: 2,500-5,000 / Ante 500
The one hand that was still going on provided hefty fireworks. On the AhJc6h flop, Arman Soltani bet 14,500 out of the small blind and Pierre Goetz raised it up to 34,500 in the cutoff. Back on Soltani, the Canadian took a long time and the clock was called. Only then, Soltani reraised to 58,500 and Goetz moved all in.
It was another 127,500 to call and Soltani reluctantly called, then immediately said “I knew it.”
Pierre Goetz: 6c6d
Arman Soltani: AdJd
The Kd turn and 8d river failed to improve Soltani and he lost the first major pot of the entire day, but remains at more than 400,000 still. The remaining field will now combine to one table and continue until one further player is eliminated.
