Konstantin Held

Konstantin Held opened to 400,000 from the button and picked up calls from Brian Scott in the small blind and Jerry Wong in the big.

The flop was Ks9h9d, Scott checked, Wong checked, and Held continued for 350,000. Scott checked-raised to 850,000 and Wong folded. Held moved all in and Scott quickly called.

Scott: Kh9s
Held: As9c

Held flopped trip nines with an ace kicker but was dominated by Scott’s full house nines over kings. A tough cooler and Held could not find a save on the 3c turn or Qh river.

The dealer counted down both stacks, they were very close, and Scott had 100K more than Held. It was 7,850,000 for Scott and 7,750,000 for Held and Held was eliminated in tenth place.

“How does that even happen?” Scott asked after the hand.

Brian Scott – 16,450,000 (82 bb)
Konstantin Held – Eliminated in 10th Place ($85,410)
