Last Friday we wrote about Nicki "Kaibuxxe" Jedlicka from Austria who won many million dollars online back in 2007, but then lost most of his bankroll to Phil Ivey and other pros. After that, Nicki Jedlicka disappeared from the high stakes scene and not until a few weeks ago he started showing up on the highest tables at Full Tilt poker. He started off by winning around $1 million in just 24 hours, most of it from Tom "Durrrr" Dwan, the American high stakes pro. That win truly whetted his appetite for playing more high stakes poker. Last Sunday Jedlicka took on Patrik Antonius and played the poker of his life. It was in this session, Jedlicka won one of his biggest pots ever - $409,481.
Blinds $300/$600 - Pot Limit Omaha / Full Tilt poker
This is how the hand was played out.
Antoinus posts big blind & Nicki Jedlicka posts the small blind.
Jedlicka is first to act and he bets $2000, Antoinus raise to $6,200. Jedlicka then re-raise to $18,800 and Patrik Antonius throws in $56,600 which Jedlicka calls. The pot is now $113,400 when the FLOP J93 lands on the table. Antonius bets the pot and Jedlicka thinks for a while before he puts Antonius all-in for his last $34,641. The pot is now $409,481.
Nicki Jedlicka shows 108J7 for top pairs and a straight draw.
Patrik Antonius shows 3AA2 for a pair of Aces
TURN shows a Q and now Antonius has a flush draw as well, but unfortuntely for him, Jedlicka hit his straight and now Antonius needs to make his flush in order to take home the pot.
RIVER shows a 10 and Jedlicka takes home the $409,481 pot with a straight versus Antonius pair of aces.
