Action folded around to Joe Kuether in the cutoff and he raised to 20,000. Max Silver, who is looking to make back-to-back WSOP Europe Main Event final tables here today, then three-bet to 50,000 from the button. Both blinds got out of the way, Kuether moved all in for 271,000, and Silver made the call.
Silver had made a good call, but that doesn't always get rewarded as evidenced by the flop, which paired Kuether's seven and gave him the lead. The turn gave Silver some added outs, but it'd be the on the river that would win him the pot. Kuether didn't seem all that surprised and quietly made his way to the payout desk as the day's first elimination.
