EPT Monte Carlo: Seven figure Ruthenberg

May 01, 2009


His is a tough table, featuring compatriots Johannes Strassmann and Sandra Naujoks as well as JJ Liu. But Sebastian Ruthenberg just became the latest player to hit the million mark. On a board reading Q♦6♥10♦8♠ Diaz Gilber in seat nine pushed 100,000 into the middle. Ruthenberg was thinking, but only about how much to re-raise, settling on 200,000.

Gilber immediately pushed all-in which Ruthenberg called, showing pocket queens for a set. Gilber had a lot of reasons to appear confident, but not quite enough, showing 10♥8♣ for two pairs. The J♦ on the river did nothing except leave Gilber with just 100,000. It takes Ruthenberg to seven figures, a towering pile of chips that took three hands to stack.
