Demlakian Takes from the Reigning Aussie Millions Champ

Chad_Holloway • Nivo 2: 150-300, 25 ante

Ken Demlakian opened for 750 from early position and was met by a three-bet to 2,725 from Ami Barer in the cutoff. Action folded back to Demlakian, he called, and the flop came down {4-Spades}{6-Hearts}{9-Spades}. Demlakian check-called a bet of 1,975 and then led out for 3,500 when the {3-Hearts} appeared on the turn.

Barer, who won the Aussie Millions Main Event back in February, called the bet and then watched Demlakian fire out 11,000 on the {q-Clubs} river. Barer tanked for a couple of minutes before tossing in a call, and he mucked just as soon as Demlakian rolled over the {q-Spades}{9-Hearts} for two pair.

Meanwhile, former Octo-Niner Russell Thomas has taken a seat in the tournament.
