Welcome to the Millionaries Club, Mr. Renkers

Patrick Renkers hadn't even finished stacking his chips from the last hand against Dany Richa, when Dennis Bejedal raised under the gun to 16,000 and play moved to him. Renkers paused, gathered himself and then three-bet to 38,000. Play folded over to Torsten Otte in the big blind and he had just doubled through Joe Serock a couple hands prior. Otte took his time and then slid out a four-bet to 83,000 with some very shaky hands.

Bejedal quickly ducked out of the way, but Renkers went into the tank. Otte had approximately 340,000 behinds and Renkers had 566,000 back. After a minute or two of thought, Renkers looked at the dealer and declared that he was all in. Otte snapped to put his tournament life on the line.

Renkers: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}
Otte: {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}

The flop came down {J-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} and kept Renkers' aces in front. The {Q-Diamonds} was a safe card on the turn before the {A-Hearts} completed the board on the river. Renkers made a seat of aces and busted Otte on the hand en route to climbing over one million in chips.
