Another Cracks Six Figures


We stopped at the table of 2010 Macau Poker CupChampionship winner Julian Hasse and took note that he’d increased his stack considerably since our last pass of his table. Well, we didn’t have to wait too much longer to see it skyrocket even further.

With a raise to 1,000 from early position, Hasse flat-called and brought in two other callers to see a flop of {a-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{k-Diamonds}. The preflop raiser tossed out 5,000 before Hasse clicked it back with a min-raise to 10,000. The other three players quickly folded before the raise was called to go heads-up to the {2-Clubs} turn.

Action checked to Hasse to flick out another couple of yellow chips to announce a bet of 10,000. The small bet was quickly called as the {Q-Clubs} completed the board on the river. The preflop aggressor quickly slid his last chips into the middle in one last defiant attempt to win the pot but Hasse beat him there with a call to find his {k-Clubs}{k-Spades} well in front of his opponent’s {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}.

With that pot, Hasse sends another opponent to the rail to climb up to a very healthy 100,000 chips and sit as only the second player to sit behind six-figures.
