Pantaridis Rivers a Straight


With the board reading Jd3h3cQcAc, Konstantinos Pantaridis (pictured above) bets 4,700 into a pot that already had almost 10,000 in the middle. His opponent is in the tank for a few moments before tossing in the chips for a call.

“I got the nuts,” said Pantaridis as he tables KcTh, good for a straight.

His opponent silently shows AsQh, good for two pair as he mucks his cards. Pantaridis moves up to just over 25,000 in chips and is one of the early chip leaders through the first level.
