Karol Bogusz
Karol Bogusz

On a flop of {4-Spades}{3-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, Karol Bogusz led out for 40,000 from the big blind and got a call from Tobias Tropschuh in late position.

On the turn {5-Hearts}, Bogusz fired out another 125,000 and Tropschuh moved all-in for approximately 500,000. Bogusz called, and as the cards were turned over, the super-cooler was revealed.

Tobias Tropschuh: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}
Karol Bogusz: {7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}

The magical turn card brought Bogusz a straight to take the lead over Tropschuh's flopped set of nines.

The river {k-Spades} couldn't save Tropschuh, and he was eliminated from the tournament.
