• Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante
Mostafa Haidary

Yuki Ko raised to 42,000 and was called by Peter Costa on the button. On the flop {8-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and the {4-Clubs} turn, both players checked. Ko check-raised the {10-Clubs} river and Costa forfeited a bet of 70,000. There was some confusion whether Ko had said call or pot, as Costa assumed the former and then showed his {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Diamonds} before mucking.

One hand later, Mostafa Haidary raised to 55,000 from the cutoff and was called by Ilias Sagias from one seat over. The flop {A-Clubs}{3-Spades}{4-Spades} was checked, Haidary then gave up the turn.

Haidary raised the next hand to 55,000 again and Ko reraised the pot out of the small blind. Haidary shoved it in and was snap-called. "It doesn't matter what he has, let's just do this," Haidary said while being at risk for around 230,000 chips.

Haidary: {Q-Hearts}{J-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
Ko: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{7-Spades}

The flop {4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{5-Hearts} was of no help at all for Haidary and he asked the dealer for running hearts. The start-of-the-day chip leader was drawing dead on the {2-Spades} turn and Ko even made a full house on the {Q-Clubs} river. Haidary was still smiling though and headed to the rail with the words "now show me the money," he receives A$17,795 for his efforts.
