Rainer Kempe opened the button for 60,000 but would discover soon enough that he wouldn’t be picking up the blinds just that easy. Small blind Michael Zhang three-bet to 230,000 and big blind Luke Reeves cold four-bet to 500,000 even. That was all Kempe needed to hear and he got out of the way soon enough.
With the action back on Zhang, he did a quick count on how much he had behind. Soon enough, he shoved for what appeared to be about 1.6 million total. Reeves wasted no time calling.
The board made for little excitement: .
Reeves, who was already leading, gained a ton more chips as Zhang exited the tournament arena with a wry smile on his face.
