Elvijs (Kuceruks) has left the building in a monster hand against Krystian Nalepka where easily Sebastian Mortensen, if we believe what he said he had, could have eliminated both players and nearly half the chips in play.

Mortensen opened for 300,000 from under the gun before Nalepka three-bet to 800,000 from the button. Kuceruks three-bet shoved for 2,875,000 from the blinds. Mortensen went into the tank before he called and Nalepka four-bet shoved for 9,300,000. Mortensen went back into the tank for a couple of minutes before folding.

“Did you have jacks or queens?” Nalepka asked.

“I had jacks,” responded Mortensen who seemed mortified about not shoving after a jack came on the 8J4 flop.

As things turned out, Nalepka regainedthe chip lead while eliminating Kuceruks in 14th place for €6,900 after the 7 turn and Q river completed the board.
