Richard Trippensee

Richard Trippensee raised to 175,000 from under the gun and Nagui Yassa moved all in for 1,095,000 on the button. Action folded back to Trippensee, who asked the dealer for a count and thought for 30 seconds before calling.

Yassa showed AsJh and was dominated by Trippensee’s AhKd.

The board ran out 7d6c2sKc7c and Yassa was drawing dead on the turn. He was eliminated in 21st place and Trippensee moves over 4 million in chips.

“You took that long to call with that?” asked Ruslan Dykshteyn after the hand.

“I’m not a crazy Russian,” said Trippensee.

“You’re a crazy American,” said Dykshteyn. “You need to catch me.”

“Sometimes you just got to sweat it out,” said Trippensee. “It’s good for the bones.”

Richard Trippensee – 4,200,000 (52 bb)
