Chance Kornuth

With the flop reading As9s4h, Chance Kornuth checked, Scott Baumstein bet 5,000 from the button and Kornuth called. The turn was Js, Kornuth checked, Baumstein continued for 17,000 and Kornuth called.

The river was Kh, Kornuth checked again, and Baumstein bet 52,000. Kornuth thought for two minutes, check-raised to 195,000 and it was Baumstein’s turn to think it through.

He talked to himself through the hand and tried to get Kornuth to talk. Baumstein called and they both flipped up their hands.

Kornuth: Ks5s
Baumstein: Ts6s

Both turned a spade flush but Kornuth was best with the nut flush to take the huge pot.

Seat 1: Scott Baumstein – 81,000
Seat 2: Chance Kornuth – 559,000
