Pateychuk Keeps Firing, Kelly Finally Relents

Shamus • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Andrey Pateychuk raised to 120,000 from middle position, and it folded around to J.P. Kelly in the big blind who made the call. The flop came {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{9-Spades}. Kelly checked, Pateychuk bet 150,000, and Kelly called. The turn brought the {J-Diamonds} and another check from Kelly. Pateychuk bet 340,000 this time, and once more Kelly called.

The river brought the {8-Diamonds}. Kelly checked again, and after a bit of thought Pateychuk fired one more bullet, this one worth 1.135 million chips. Kelly went into the tank, repeating "1.135, 1.135" as he considered what to do. Finally he let his hand go.

Both players are sitting with top five stacks at the moment, with Pateychuk at 7.64 million and Kelly 7.51 million.
