Soltani Leaves Karkus Short
$1,150 TKPT Main Event Final Day 4/84
Level 22: 6,000-12,000 / Ante 2,000
On the button, Arman Soltani raised to 24,000 and Mario Eder in the small blind as well as Viktor Karkus in the big blind called. On the Ks5c2s flop, Eder checked and Karkus bet 18,000, which both opponents called. On the 3s turn, Eder checked again and Karkus made it 50,000 to go.
This time just Soltani called and the 7d river completed the board. Karkus checked and Soltani asked for his stack. “I have around 250,” Karkus initially replied, then checked again and corrected himself to just 190. Soltani bet 68,000 and Karkus tossed in a single chip.
“Set”, Soltani announced and turned over 5d5h. Karkus had a disgusted look on the face, turned over 5s3h for turned two pair and dropped to just 10 big blinds. Soltani continues the hot streak and moved up to more than 800,000.
