Richard Estep opened to 700,000 from the cutoff and Maksim Lebedev moved all in for 2,300,000. The button and blinds folded and Estep called after a short think.
“You got me,” Estep said. “Maybe I’ll hit a five.”
The flop came and Estep said “or maybe I’ll hit a deuce.”
Lebedev needed to fade a wheel draw but paired his king on the turn to take away out and doubled after the river.
Maksim Lebedev – 5,400,000 (18 bb)
Richard Estep – 7,800,000 (26 bb)
