Hand #211: Staszko Turns the Tides
 

Martin Staszko had the button, and he raised to 3.5 million. Pius Heinz might be picking up the pace even harder here, and he made another reraise to 10.1 million. Staszko called the three-bet, though, and they went off to the flop. Heinz continued right out into the pot with another 9.8 million chips. Staszko has been acting quickly today, and once again, he didn't waste more than 30 seconds sliding the call into the middle.

The dropped on fourth street, and Heinz reached for chips again. Any pot that goes past the flop is significant now, and another 21.3 million from Heinz made things quite serious. Staszko was undeterred, though. He raised all in for just over 60 million, and Heinz's cards hit the muck rather quickly.

That turns the tides once again, and now it's Staszko with more than 120 million and a healthy chip lead.
