Manig Loeser:

Hutter Jumps Above Two Million; Umdenstock Runs Bad

Barry Hutter

Following a reraise by Joseph Umdenstock, Barry Hutter clicked it back up to 150,000 and Umdenstock quickly called. On the     flop, Hutter continued for 100,000 and was called almost instantly before the second barrel on the   turn was for 175,000. Again, Umdenstock wasted little time before making the call to see the   on the river.

Hutter moved all in and Umdenstock was taken aback.

"That's a terrible river card for you," he said and soon after added "I need a couple minutes people, sorry." It only took 90 seconds before Umdenstock sent his cards into the muck, though, while Hutter stayed busy to implement further chips into his growing tower of chips.

Shortly after, Umdenstock was involved in another big pot and called the shove of Sunil Verma on the     flop with    for bottom set. Verma had the    for the gutshot and flush draw, and the   turn and   river completed the flush. Verma doubled for 273,000 and Umdenstock's stack took another big hit.
