Istvan Briski

Rayan Chamas raised to 1,500,000 from the button, Istvan Briski three-bet to 5,700,000 from the big blind, and Chamas called.

They checked to the turn of an AcJhThJc board where Briski bet 5,500,000. Chamas called.

The river was the 5s, Briski went all in for 18,200,000, and Chamas used a time extension before he called.

Briski showed Jd4c for trip jacks, besting Chamas’ Ad5d to double into a sizable chip lead.

Istvan Briski  –  59,400,000  (99 bb)
Rayan Chamas  –  12,500,000  (21 bb)
